First Annual 2010 Kids @ Play Interactive (KAPi) Nominees and Winners Announced
We are pleased to announce the winners of the first annual KAPi Awards, given at Kids @ Play (http://ces2010.kidsatplaysummit.com/) event on January 7 at CES.
The KAPi prize is an honest attempt to ask as many people as possible “which children’s tech products raised the bar for innovation and excellence last year?” For more about the award and award process, visit the KAPi FAQs: http://childrenstech.com/blog/2009/12/30/faqs-about-the-kapi-awards/
ABOUT THE SELECTION PROCESS: To create this list, we started with the 493 titles that we reviewed in 2009, then polled the attendees of the Fall Dust or Magic Institute (60 publishers, researchers and reviewers). From these, we came up with a list of 40, which were voted on. There were no entry fees or registration process (let’s be clear: these companies or people did not pay to be on this list).
Here’s the official press release:
