The City Dads Group website has been nominated for a new award that recognizes excellence in and commitment to creating parenting content.
The Richard and Linda Eyre Family Is Awards were established last year to recognize social media influencers whose online content best celebrates commitment, popularizes parenting, bolsters balance and validates values. The Family Is awards are scheduled to be presented in early February at the I Am Mom Summit, an online conference on parenting.
City Dads Group’s website was chosen as a finalist from among hundreds that were nominated and screened by an expert panel of judges. Two awards — a judge’s selection and a “people choice” selection will be given in the following catagories: Blogs, Websites, Podcasts, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.
“The Family Is Awards were created to recognize those who are promoting strong families. Parenting may be the most important thing we do to affect society yet there is little public recognition. We want to change this and celebrate people like you for your family-centric content,” said Jamie and Mike Taylor, chairpersons and founders of I am Mom summit in the letter announcing City Dads Group’s nomination. “The whole point of the Family Is Awards is that recognition can spawn more quality content online that will help an ever-growing number of marriages, families, and parents to build strong and lasting relationships.”
Richard and Linda Eyre, authors of 50 books and honorary chairpersons for the wards bearing their names, have been at the forefront of a movement to strengthen families amidst cultures and societal norms that are moving in opposite directions, according to a press release accompanying the nomination announcement.
City Dads Group, along with its predecessor NYC Dads Group, has received several honors over the years for it chapters’ work, website/blog and podcast.
