As a grandparent and grandparenting activitist, I wanted to call to your attention GRAND Magazine call for nominations for their annual GRANDParent of the Year Award. GRAND Magazine is one of KIDS FIRST!’s media partner and they are just super people.
Christine Crosby, founder and publisher commented, “Last year’s contest made such an impact on all involved that we decided to make this an annual event. One of the joys of this project for me was that so many of last year’s nominations were by grandchildren on our kid-safe site http://www.grandcontest.com/.”
GRAND magazine is a national publication and online resource for today’s active and community-involved grandparents. For the 2007 GRANDParent of The Year Award, nominations can be made by anybody. Nominating forms are available in GRAND magazine and available online at http://www.grandmagazine.com/.
