RivoKids Parents And Kids Choice Awards #PKCA2015

RivoKids is a top Indian online community for parents and kids. 
RivoKids.com = Fun Moments & Smart Ideas. India's First Online Community for Parents & Kids.
RivoKids is a cool online hangout place with many interesting things to do and learn with fun contests, activities and giveaways.
RivoKids strives to curate kids products and provide meaningful and interactive engagement for parents & kids.

Last year, RivoKids and Hindustan Times held the Parents and Kids Choice Awards (PKCA) 2014 for three Age Groups (0-5 years, 6-10 years and 10-15 years).  
Parents and children nominated their favorites and voted across five categories on– 
Book (International)
Books (Indian Authors)
Websites & YouTube Videos
Mobile Apps
Toys & Games

Parents and Kids Choice Awards 2015 
RivoKids received 1,000 nominations and about 5,000 votes from parents and children across the categories. It was hugely popular and successful with extensive media coverage and a series of 7 articles in Hindustan Times Student Edition.  
Check out RivoKids PKCA in the Media and the RivoKids coverage in Mint Lounge for PKCA.

Need for PKCA – To answer questions like- What is best for children? 
Events like the Parents and Kids Choice Awards (PKCA) are welcome as:
- They focus on what today’s youngsters find engaging
- Parents and children can easily pick their favorites 
- They inform about the choices. 
In this tech-age where smart gadgets rule, edutainment – education with entertainment- makes sense. 
It is said- ‘Knowledge is power’.  
Parents like me are interested to learn about activities, resources, projects and ideas to help their kids develop lateral thinking and logical reasoning. However, though most parents have the intention to provide the best, not all have access to the latest info or trends. Many cannot afford the time or effort to research or find out more or better resources.

Importance of PKCA Overcome Choice-Challenges with Crowd-Sourced Recommendations & Information  
- PKCA has crowd-sourced recommendations for those of us who don’t have the information about the latest and the best must-read books or must-use-toys, apps, brands or must-watch-movies etc. 
- Parenting becomes easier and more meaningful when we have such good online and offline content access and extra information relevant for children of all age groups.  
For example, at a book store, parents normally reach out for books by familiar authors or those dealing with stories they have read or are aware. Good books by new authors may not be considered just because the author’s name is unfamiliar to the parents.  
Similar is the case with websites, libraries, games etc.  
- Recommendations and info about such products from other parents and kids can be very empowering.

Better Quality and More Quantity Of Relevant Choices 
Rather than forcing kids to go for the tried-and-tested and for the famous choices, now with Parents and Kids Choice Awards, we have extra recommendations! 
With a list of other award categories like popular websites, mobile apps etc, parents now have a choice to decide from options, rather than going for the usual iconic or famous choices.
Nominate your favourite Books by Indian and International Authors, Kids Movies, Mobile Apps and Popular Kids Brands in Parents and Kids Choice Awards 2015!
