Edita’s middle school learning material Memo 8 Historia was awarded the Gold prize in the Best European Learning Materials Awards 2014.

Edita‘s win came in the category for learning materials aimed at learners aged 12 and upward. The prize was presented at the Frankfurt Book Fair.

Memo is a learning material series focusing on learning history skills. It includes a textbook, an exercise book, digital exercise material, an audio book and teacher’s material in digital form.

Edita Publishing’s Publishing Manager Hanna Sokratous said in her thank-you speech that, in addition to the bookmakers and publishing editors, Finnish teachers have significantly contributed to the creation of the learning material.

The Best European Learning Materials Awards is an annual competition co-organised by the European Educational Publishers Group and the Frankfurt Book Fair. According to the organisers, the number of participants has increased from year to year, and this year’s competition attracted participants from 20 countries. Prizes were awarded in four categories. 

Finland was the Guest of Honour at this year’s Frankfurt Book Fair.
