Humblebrag Alert: We Won Awards!

Up to the podium four times at this weekend's Parenting Media Association Awards!

We just got back from this year's Parenting Media Association conference, an annual get-together of editors and publishers of 90 regional parenting mags nationwide. It's always great to see our peers from other cities, to discuss parenting trends and brainstorm innovative ways to serve you, our readers, better in the months and years to come.

We came away with some fantastic ideas to do just that, so keep reading! In the meantime, we've got some big news to share.

MetroKids won a quartet of editorial awards at the conference. The PMA Awards competition, which recognizes excellence in journalism on an annual basis, is judged by an impartial panel of judges from the influential University of Missouri School of Journalism, experts whose high level of professionalism and experience make any and every win even sweeter. This year, MetroKids won medals in the categories of:

  • Family Fun
  • Best Blog
  • Editor's Note
  • Reviews

Kudos to the team behind these columns:

As humbled and excited as we are by our success this past weekend, we're not about to rest on any laurel. We've got big plans to make MetroKids an even stronger resource for your family, and we'd love to hear about what you'd like to read in our pages and on our website. Feel free to email me with story or community ideas at any time. We value your readership and input more than you could know.
