Empowering Children to Explore the Internet--Safely
It is an honor that while we have been focused on building Zui.com to deliver the best Internet experiences for kids, we have been recognized on a national level. At the end of 2011 I was presented with an extraordinary honor – to be honored as a 2011 Champion of Change by the White House. Part of President Obama’s Winning the Future initiative, the Champions of Change program highlights Americans who are making an impact in their communities and helping our country rise to meet the many challenges of the 21st century.
I am, simply, honored and humbled to receive this recognition, and to have the opportunity to reach out to other recipients and White House representatives to continue to discuss amplifying best practices in both the private and public sectors.
The team at Zui.com works tirelessly to make the Internet big, fun and safe for kids, and has done so since 2008, when we launched our first KidZui Browser. The browser empowers children to safely and independently explore and enjoy over 5 million parent-and-teacher reviewed websites, games, images and YouTube videos.
We are very proud that our recently launched ZUI.COM search and exploration engine has been hailed as the "Google for kids." We are proud that the administration feels we are a good example of President Obama’s vision to “out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world, and we are excited to share our learning with the administration and help further innovation in the United States.”
