Burlington - Kids VT, Vermont’s free monthly parenting magazine, took home the General Excellence award, as well as six other awards, in the Parenting Media Association’s 2016 Design and Editorial Awards Competition. The national competition recognizes excellence in journalism, photography and design in regional parenting publications that are PMA members. The PMA announced the honors at its convention in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Kids VT won the following awards in its circulation category:

In their explanation of why Kids VT stood out in the overall writing category, the PMA judges wrote: “When the managing editor leads off with a shame-faced account of her first failure as a new mother, you know this is a magazine that lives where its readers do. That sense of warmth and personality pervades each issue. This was a strong category, but those characteristics lifted the gold medal winner above other good writing.”

This is the fifth year Kids VT has entered the competition after the magazine was purchased and redesigned by Burlington-based newsweekly Seven Days.

“There are no syndicated columns or features in Kids VT, and no clickbait,” said Cathy Resmer, copublisher and executive editor. “Just articles, essays and reviews about family life in the Green Mountain State — each of them painstakingly crafted by local writers, editors and designers. We’re thrilled and grateful to be honored as one of the top parenting magazines in the country. And we feel lucky to live in Vermont, which is one of the best places in the country to raise a family.”

The PMA, headquartered in Norwalk, Conn., represents more than 100 parenting magazines and newspapers in the United States, Canada and Australia. Kids VT is distributed free each month at more than 600 locations in northwestern and central Vermont. Its comprehensive calendar and weekly email newsletter, the Wee-Mail, keep Vermont families up-to-date on the latest local events. Kids VT writers also appear on WCAX-TV to discuss parenting topics.
