2017 Golden Teddy Awards

Cast your vote for the top local resources for Seattle + Puget Sound families

2017 Golden Teddy Awards

Sponsored by

SpringFree WiggleWorks Kids


When you’re a busy parent, the right support is as important as oxygen. On months where the famous Seattle drizzle seems endless, we know how important the best indoor play spot and museums are. When the cold or flu comes knocking on our door, a caring and responsive doctor makes all the difference for our little ones. 

That’s why ParentMap asks you every year for your favorite resources, camps, classes, shops, grub, play spots, groups and professionals. We know that you are the experts on where the family dollar is best spent and which local services go above and beyond. Because you, the parents of Puget Sound, do know best.

How It Works

Round 1, April 6-16, 2017: Nominate your favorite businesses

Round 2, April 24-30, 2017: Vote from the top five finalists in each category

Winners will be announced in the July issue of ParentMap Magazine.

This year, we've rounded up over $1,000 in fabulous prizes for our voters, including a family escape to Sleeping Lady Mountain Resort and Semiahmoo Resort, Golf + Spa. All voters will be automatically entered into the prize pool. See full prize details below.
