We are pleased to announce that ExploreLearning is one of three finalists for a Distinguished Achievement Award from The Association of Educational Publishers in the Science Instruction Website (Grade 9-12) category.

The Distinguished Achievement Awards recognize the best educational materials -- such as books, periodicals, educational toys, and software -- within subject categories and by audience.

The winners will be announced on June 12, 2006, in Washington D.C. If anyone is attending the awards banquet at the 2007 Educational Publishing Summit this evening feel free to look for us. Four of us will be there for the event (even a developer will be there!). We'll let you know tomorrow if we won :)
