Question: What is the Best Website for Kids?

There is no shortage of websites for kids. There are sites for watching videos, homework help, games, social networking and more. When you're looking for a great site for kids, where do you go?

We want to know which website for kids is your favorite and why. We're taking nominations for the best websites from January 1, 2010 through January 24, 2010. Voting takes place in February with the Reader's Choice winner announced March 1.

*If you'd like to nominate a virtual world for kids, please visit the nomination page for the Best Virtual World for Kids. Virtual worlds are not eligible for this award.

Answer: The Best Website for Kids is one that is safe, fun, engaging and maybe even educational. We invite you to nominate your favorite website for kids for this award. In this case, we're looking for websites that:
  • have age-appropriate content
  • take Internet safety seriously
  • are open to everyone (no closed Betas, please)
  • have either no ads, or integrate age-appropriate ads that don't detract from the site
  • are not considered a "virtual world"

How to Nominate: Best Website for Kids

Between January 1 and January 24, 2010, use the form (link below) to nominate your favorite website for kids. Place the name of the site in the subject. In the text area, include the url and an explanation of why this site is your favorite. The form has a 50 character minimum. Do not hesitate to nominate sites that have already been nominated by others. Multiple nominations increase the chances that your choice will make it into the finalist round for voting.

Once nominations are closed, a panel will select 5 finalists to move on to the voting stage. Finalists will be selected from websites that meet the above guidelines. While the number of nominations for a particular site will be a factor, it is not the only criteria. We recognize that the best website for kids might be one that is a hidden gem.

Voting will take place between February 1 and February 24, 2010. Winners will be announced on March 1.

*If you'd like to nominate a virtual world for kids, please visit the nomination page for the Best Virtual World for Kids. Virtual worlds are not eligible for this award. We understand that there may be some confusion/disagreement about what constitutes a virtual world and will take into consideration nominations that are placed in the wrong category.
