Bogus and Cahoots Win Creative Child Magazine Awards!
We were just notified that Bogus and Cahoots, written by Karla Oceanak and illustrated by Kendra Spanjer, have both been honored by Creative Child magazine in their 2011 children’s products awards program!
Bogus—2011 Seal of Excellence
Cahoots—2011 Preferred Choice Award
Each year, Creative Child holds a 2-day event is held in Henderson, Nevada where over a hundred guest reviewers (moms and education professionals) are invited to attend a review event at the local convention center. All products are divided into categories and displayed at various review stations. Guest reviewers are asked to sit and review each products at one station and then move to another station and so forth and so on. A review form is provided to each guest to aid them in evaluating each product. The review forms are to include written comments and a score value based on criteria that corresponds to the product’s category.
Finally all review forms are collected, scores tabulated, and comments reviewed. Based on the scores and comments, certain products are determined to be finalists and receive a prestigious Preferred Choice award. The Seal of Excellence is another prestigious award given to those products that are not finalists but do exceed expectations based on the criteria for nurturing creativity and education in children.
Look for both Bogus and Cahoots to be featured in Creative Child‘s special holiday issue this November!
