We evaluate everything guided by proven learning, creativity, innovation and brain-building principles.
To be considered for this award, your product, media, website or online course must reflect recognized proven learning values, stimulate initial or higher order thinking skills, be inclusive of brain-building principles, and you must be innovative in your approach to help children learn, play or be creative. We look for all the ways in which your product assimilates social and emotional growth, humor if applicable, builds character, and helps children see the joy in learning or play.
Products must align with the highest quality that both parents and teachers immediately recognize because it benefits kids now and into the future. Products and media must reflect that they are part of the building blocks that shape and improve children’s lives. We are looking to see that your product, service and company makes a real difference in children’s lives.
