Who’s this dapper fellow? Why, it’s the Cat in the Hat! Just hanging out in our Rootle department in among the other colorful characters that make up the PBS Kids line-up. He is a very handy guy to have around because apparently he knows a lot about – uh, that.
If you’ve never heard of the Kidscreen Awards, you’re probably not alone. However, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that PBS received three of them. The Kidscreen Awards, which celebrate the year’s best in children’s media, were handed out February 12 during the Kidscreen Summit in Miami.
PBS was awarded Channel of the Year, Best Website (Preschool) and Best Game App (for PBS KIDS Games). This is the fifth time PBS KIDS has been named Channel of the Year since the award’s inception in 2011.
Additionally, PBS KIDS producers took home three awards:
Best Non-Animated or Mixed Series ODD SQUAD Fred Rogers Productions, Sinking Ship Entertainment
Best in Class ODD SQUAD Fred Rogers Productions, Sinking Ship Entertainment
Best Website,Kids ODD SQUAD PBS KIDS, Fred Rogers Productions, Sinking Ship Entertainment
Congratulations to all the PBS KIDS recipients on their well-deserved 2019 Kidscreen Awards.
