Metro Parent Wins 16 Awards in 2011!

Southeast Michigan magazine and MetroParent.com website earn praise for design and editorial excellence from Parenting Publications of America

Here at Metro Parent, we're big on delivering the best parenting advice to moms and dads in metro Detroit and Ann Arbor. And we're proud to say we just got some really big applause from the Parenting Publications of America!

Metro Parent took home a whopping 16 awards – including 10 gold nods – at the PPA Annual Convention, held March 5, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia. We were up against other large-circulation publications in major metro cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Dallas and Seattle, to name a few. A panel of 25 judges, led by Professor Daryl Moen of the esteemed University of Missouri School of Journalism, cast the votes. And here's the verdict.

Seeing golden stars

So, what got gold? This site, for starters! For the second year running, MetroParent.com won top honors for general excellence.
