General Criteria

General Criteria that the Parents' Choice Awards committees consider include excellent production values, universal human values, appeal to children, and age appropriateness.

Above all, products must not extol violence.

Please Note: Specific results of product evaluations will not be released.

Products submitted to the Parents' Choice Awards program will not be returned. Submission fees will not be refunded.
