NYC DOE Educators Attend Professional development for CE credit
Each year, NYC public school students, grades 3-12, write and illustrate their own picture books, books that reflect their experiences and develop their skills. The program culminates in an exhibition, an award ceremony with medals and monetary prizes and every student, who completes a book, receives a Certificate of Commendation.
