FORT WORTH, TX, March 30, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Progressive Rising Phoenix Press is honored to announce that Spider Web Scramble by Amanda M. Thrasher has earned the prestigious Mom's Choice Awards . Having been rigorously evaluated by a panel of MCA evaluators, Spider Web Scramble is deemed to be among the best products for families and received a Gold Mom's Choice Award for its category.
The Mom's Choice Awards has named Spider Web Scramble as among the best in family-friendly media, products and services. The MCA evaluation process uses a propriety methodology in which entries are scored on a number of elements including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal, and cost.
To be considered for an award, each entrant submits five (5) identical samples for testing. Entries are matched to evaluators in the MCA database. Evaluators are bound by a strict code of ethics not only to ensure objectivity, but also to ensure that the evaluation is free from manufacturer influence. The five evaluations are submitted to the MCA Executive Committee for final review and approval.
"Our aim to introduce families and educators to best-in-class products and services," explains Dawn Matheson, Executive Director of the Mom's Choice Awards . "We have a passion to help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually. Parents and educators know that products and services bearing our seal of approval are high-quality and also a great value. The MCA evaluation program is designed to incorporate the expertise of scientists, physicians and other specialists; but we also engage parents, children, educators, and caregivers because they are experts in knowing what is best for their families."
"We are thrilled to earn the Mom's Choice Awards Honoring Excellence Seal of Approval," says Alicia Miller, Marketing Director. "We know all the great things the MCA does to connect consumers, educators, and caregivers with the best products and services available for families.
