Staten Island, NY – Staten Island Parent, the primary parenting media resource for families in Staten Island, has been recognized by the Parenting Media Association for excellence in both print and digital initiatives. The winners of the 2019 Design & Editorial Awards were announced at the Parenting Media Association (PMA) Annual Conference March 1, 2019 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Staten Island Parent is honored to be the recipient of two Gold Medals, one Silver Medal, and one Bronze Medal. You can link to the award-winning digital and editorial items below.
The Staten Island Parent Weekly E-Newsletter earned a Gold Medal in the digital category! Judges said of our highly informative newsletter: “A simple design is supported by a nearly endless supply of events, activities and links to family-friendly directories and other resources.”
Also earning a Gold Medal in the Family Fun Column category is our monthly Good Sports column by sportswriter Joe LoVerde. The judges said Joe “embraces and enhances the sense of community that evolves around sports with short features that celebrate local residents’ competitive accomplishments. His experience as a coach and a veteran sports writer lends his pieces an authentic voice.”
A Silver Medal in the editorial category for Profile goes to Staten Island Parent Editor Jeannine Cintron for Giving Thanks on Veteran’s Day from the November 2018 issue. Judges had this to say of the piece: “This thoughtful essay by the wife of a U.S. Marine provides a full-throttled tribute to veterans and inspires pride and compassion for all their sacrifice and unsung heroism, at home and on the battlefield.”
And last, but certainly not least, we are very proud to earn a Bronze Medal for General Excellence for our website siparent.com. The judges were very impressed by our Family Calendar, saying “Particularly notable is the extensive, often-updated calendar of events, including many that are specific to the borough and don’t require a long trip. Content is carefully curated and up to date.”
Staten Island Parent CEO David L. Miller, remarked, “We are absolutely thrilled by this honor and grateful to the PMA for their wonderful recognition. We are committed to consistently delivering high quality, valuable, award-winning content to Staten Island families across all media platforms, and look forward to continuing to serve the community in the future.”
