On June 30, 2014, CLAS was notified by the NCTE Standing Committee on Affiliates that our affiliate journal, Statement, earned the top rating for the 2014 NCTE Affiliate Journal Award. The judges awarded at least one perfect score in each of five criteria, praising "the range of content, the successful use of the 'formula' theme, and the 'uniformly high' quality of writing, 'blessedly free of jargon.' " According to the judges, Statement possesses "the feel of a national journal." Sarah Zerwin, Statement editor, will attend the Affiliate Roundtable Breakfast on Sunday, November 16, at the 2014 NCTE Convention in Washington, D.C., where she will receive this well-deserved award. Congrats to Sarah and to CLAS!
