Parents' Picks Awards FAQ
What is Parents Connect?
For 30 years, Nickelodeon has built a global business by putting kids first. Now, the folks who brought you Nick Jr., Noggin and The N, take the same dedicated, practical approach to parents. Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect is an informational, community-based Web site for parents to connect with local family events, great deals and activities, age-relevant content, and other parents.
ParentsConnect celebrates the reality of parenting, which deals with daily challenges large and small, from pregnancy to the teenage years. Our motto is "We're not perfect. We're parents." And we mean it!
What are the Parents' Picks Awards?
The Parents' Picks Awards is the only awards program that lets parents (like you!) vote on the best family-friendly resources in their community - everything from Best Dentists and Best Family Restaurants to Best Playgrounds and Parks - in 52 cities across the U.S.
Do you have to register to vote?
Nope. Just pick your city and vote away!
How are the nominees selected?
Most of the Parents' Picks nominees are chosen based on parent reviews and ratings. In three special categories, real parents (i.e., you!) get to nominate their favorites. What's an election without a write-in vote, right?
What criteria were used for picking nominees?
There are many reasons why a place might stand out to parents. Sometimes it's a commitment to quality, selection or service. Or maybe the business does an extra-special something to help parents out (stroller parking, changing tables, cups with lids ... without even asking!). The nominee choices are not related to, or influenced by, any advertising or partner relationships.
Who decides the winners?
From May 5, 2009, to July 15, 2009, parents can vote for their favorite local places (up to once per day).
When will the winners be announced?
The 2009 Parents' Picks winners will be announced August 17, 2009.
