Catalog of award winners is harmless but not exciting.

One movie still on the "Entertainment" awards page shows a character smoking a cigarette.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this is a clearinghouse for awards in a variety of categories, from the more shallow (like beauty pageants) to the more noble (the Nobel Peace Prize). There is some advertising on the site, running the gamut from fast food restaurants to beauty and pet care products, but no links to outside sites. There are some discussion forums, but they're not very busy, with no topic having more than one or two messages.

What's it about?

AWARDS AND HONORS is a place to find out about different awards, their history, upcoming awards ceremonies and latest announcements. Whether you're curious about Nathan's legendary hot dog eating contest, or the latest Pulitzer Prize winners, you'll find the information here. In addition to information on various awards and their winners (past and present), there are relevant news updates in several awards categories from beauty and entertainment, to science and education. Visitors can also use the site's calendar to stay abreast of awards, weigh in on the forums about who did or didn't deserve to win, and create a personal awards page to show off what they've won.

Is it any good?

There's a lot of information here. If you're looking for a one-stop destination for info on awards winners or nominees for absolutely everything, this is a good place to start your research.

But if you want more than just the barebones facts, you'll have to look elsewhere. Under Arts & Architecture for example, there's a list of winners of a particular award going back 10 years or more, but no info on the building or design that earned them their accolades. For more detailed information, you'll need additional sources.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it takes to be an achiever. Do you think some awards are more important than others? Why? Which renowned award winners are good role models? If you were to be recognized for something that you did, what would you like it to be?
