Space Race Kids Wins WebAward

SpaceRace.jpgCongrats to The Space Race web series and interactive site, at www.spaceracekids.com, which was just awarded a 2011 WebAward for Outstanding Achievement in web development by the Web Marketing Association. Each year, the WMA presents awards to various websites in a multitude of categories. Space Race was selected in the Education Category for outstanding website together with their development partner Speakaboos.

The website achieved above average scores in all categories including design, content, and innovation. The website has received over 28,000 visitors since it was launched as part of Speakaboos “Journey to Space Month” on March 14 and has expanded its fan base all over the world.

“Many families have written thanking us for making a kid-friendly web series focusing on space education,” CEO and Executive Producer Richard Schweiger says. “They also appreciate the fun and entertaining learning tools we offer – the 3D Space Race game, trivia, coloring pages – all of which makes Space Race a truly interactive website.”

Space Race’s Chief Space Scout and social media guru Matthias Schmitt explains that “the space race is a marathon, and we want to plant the seeds of knowledge about exploring our solar system and beyond as early as we can. One way we’ve done this is by taking our main character, Eagle, on a journey along with us to shuttle launches, museums, and schools, where we’ve met new fans and generated excitement about Space Race and space education.”

Space Race launched as an animated web series focusing on space education, space travel and racing, with the goal of teaching children about space and the solar system. Space Race features eight characters, each in spaceship form, as they race through space, merging unique comic relief with breathtaking excitement and adventure.
