NERI’s Interactive Educational Game Wins Big

November 4, 2015 -- An interactive computer game aimed at kids ages 8 -14 that helps dispel misconceptions about medical clinical trials has won honors from three separate organizations. Called The Paper Kingdom, the game was developed by New England Research Institutes (NERI) with a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

The Paper Kingdom received a Gold Award of Excellence in the 2015 Communicator Awards for children’s interactive multimedia, for which, NERI competed against programs developed by other health communications organizations. NERI was also named a Finalist in the 58th CINE Golden Eagle Awards for Professional Media and received the award at the CINE Celebrates presentation in New York City, which honored programs across a range of media.

The Paper Kingdom was given two Silver Awards from the W3 competition, one award in the category of games or applications specifically for children, and another in the general category of games and gaming. The W³ Awards honor creative excellence on the web, and recognize the creative professionals behind award-winning sites, videos and marketing programs.
