You’ve been Sentenced! word game receives prestigious Parent’s Choice Award

The You’ve been Sentenced! word game was recently received a coveted Parent’s Choice Award for Spring 2011. This is the 11th national industry award for the game, which was launched in May 2005.

 
PRLog - May 23, 2011 - WILMINGTON, Del. -- Wilmington, Delaware, May 23, 2011 – The You’ve been Sentenced! word game was recently honored with a Parent’s Choice Award (www dot Parents-Choice dot org)  for Spring 2011. Established in 1978, Parents’ Choice is the nation's oldest nonprofit guide to quality children's media and toys.

Diana Huss Green established Parents’ Choice Foundation on the following three beliefs: reading is the key for children to the world's histories, literatures, arts and sciences; accomplishment is essential to self-esteem; and learning requires discipline. The Foundation's mission is to provide parents with reliable unbiased information about tools to help their children learn, to explore new challenges, to discuss ideas and to pursue dreams.

According to the Parent’s Choice review of You’ve been Sentenced! by Don Oldenburg, “Educationally, the game reinforces skills in sentence structure, grammar, vocabulary, spelling and overall language. In terms of pure fun, if you have the right players, this can be a loud and funny blast of smart gaming.”

Since its creation in 2005, the You’ve Been Sentenced! game has been recognized by both the gaming and education communities and is the recipient of numerous awards. In addition to the Parent’s Choice Award You’ve been Sentenced! has been recognized with the following honors:
