"We are honoured by this prestigious recognition from the Kidscreen Awards and the youth programming production industry. The vision for our youth programming is focused on the educational quality of our content, its variety and the diversity of the types of shows we offer our young audience. Our youth content is in constant demand, particularly on our YouTube channel which, with its more than 30 million views, has gained quite a reputation thanks to the exceptional progression of its three sub-channels, with a growth of 1,154%," declared Glenn O'Farrell, President and CEO of Groupe Média TFO.
Mini TFO also offers recognized educational content such as the Biblio Mini app, nominated at the 2014 Mobile App Awards 2014 in the "Best Children's App" category, and other entertaining and diversified products available on several platforms.
"This nomination is the fruit of the labour of a talented team wholly dedicated to children's development. Josée, Lexie and Louis, the hosts of MINI TFO, accompany kids in a way that is an extension from school and parents. Our passion is to develop unique contents that encourage children's personal development and help bring out the best in them, while playing a positive role in their identity-building as Francophones," added Marianne Lambert, Mini TFO series producer.
