Creative Child Magazine’s Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted for review are reviewed by moms, early education professionals and music educators. Each product is reviewed by many people and not by any one person.
Every year, an event is held in Henderson, Nevada where over a hundred guest reviews are invited to attend the organized two-day event. All products are divided into each respective category and are displayed at various review stations. Each guest reviewer is provided with a form that aids them in evaluating each product. Written comments and a score value are based on criteria that corresponds to each products category.
Kem Clark, president of Omnicor, Inc., commented, “We’re really excited to receive this award and honored to receive this award for Birthday Calendar, our newest product!”
