Kids' Money site scoops Good Web Guide Award

A financial education website for kids created by John Brown Media has won best-in-category at the Good Web Guide Awards 2013. The Pocket Money teacher's site, which was produced for RBS/NatWest to teach 7 to 11-year-olds about dealing with money, beat off competition to take the top prize in the Education category.

Pocket Money editor Will Petty, who collected the award on behalf of the John Brown team, said: "Preparing children to take financial responsibility is so important - we're delighted that the site has got this recognition from the Good Web Guide."

The judging team included Julie Hall, founder of Women Unlimited, who had this praise for Pocket Money: "It's intuitive, easy to use and packed full of valuable ideas and tools. Well done NatWest for creating such a valuable resource."

The website is a repository of free educational resources that teachers can use to deliver financial education in the classroom within the framework of the curriculum. Resources include lesson plans, worksheets, web games and flashcards, all created by John Brown in collaboration with a team of educational consultants to make learning about money as engaging as possible.
