COLUMBIAKids Wins Silver in the MUSE Awards

COLUMBIAKids, the on-line e-zine for kids published by the Washington State History Museum, has won Silver in the American Association of Museums Media and Technology MUSE awards.

Judges said:
COLUMBIAKids is a very attractive website which functions like an on-line magazine. The site should be commended for involving children’s authors and illustrators to work on the content which makes the site more appealing to the young readers. It is a useful resource for teachers. The site has many interesting sections to engage the readers – the jurors especially like CollectionConnundrum which teaches children how to look at objects and podPuzzle.

I am happy to have published a middle grade short story, “Tales from the Lighthouse,” article, “Rachel the Pike Market Pig” and upcoming article, “Who Is Under the Bridge: The Fremont Troll” with this fabulous publication.

As quoted from the producers of the magazine, “We do not have any advertising and spend our funds on top-notch writers and illustrators instead of printing and postage. Here at COLUMBIAKids, we think “outside the book.”
