I’m thrilled to announce that the Parenting Media Association honored my feature article What Kind of Mom Are You?” which appeared in the December, 2014 issue of Kansas City Parent magazine with a bronze award. The light-hearted quiz won in the print editorial category “Non Traditional Story Form Feature” at the PMA’s annual design and editorial awards convention this past weekend. 

Here’s what the PMA had to say regarding the award:

Bronze: Kansas City Parent Magazine; “KC Parent Quiz”; Michael Gimotty, publisher, Margaret Sarver, editor, Kim Tappan, art director, Christa Hines, writer. This feature is a fun and interactive way to engage readers that mirrors popular online quizzes. Questions are relevant to most moms and are likely to keep them reading through to the end.

What Kind of Mom Are You? by Christa Melnyk Hines

Aren’t we all a little guilty of labeling other moms? Sure, we all share the common goal of nurturing a happy, healthy family, and we make different choices to get there. But just for fun, have you ever considered what “mom” category you most likely fall into? Take the quiz! 

Member parenting publications from the U.S., Canada and Australia compete in the annual competition. Submissions were collected in November, 2015. Judges considered issues published between December, 2014 through November, 2015. In this year’s competition, magazines competed in five categories ranging from design and editorial to general excellence. Overall, Kansas City Parent magazine won eight print and digital awards, including five for KC Parent and three for KCParent.com.

Thank you to Kansas City Parent for nominating my article!
