Dr. Robyn Wins Writing Award: Series on Body Image

I’m very honored and excited to have been given a national reward for my series on Fitting In and Standing out; September, October, and November! This was a body image series for Bay State Parent Magazine.

Parenting Publications of America (PPA) gave out more than 400 awards to 78 parenting publications in the United States, Canada, & Australia.

PPA’s Editorial & Design Awards Competition recognizes excellence in journalism, photography, and design achieved by publishers, editors, writers, and designers at member publications. A panel of judges reviewed 1,249 entries this year to choose the winners in each category. All judges have had significant professional journalism experience.
