Xavier Riddle Wins Best Animation Preschool Program at YMA Awards

We are thrilled to announce that Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum has won best preschool animation at the 2021 Awards of Excellence. Presented by the Youth Media Alliance via a livestreamed virtual Gala at the Globe and Mail Centre, the Awards of Excellence celebrate the best in Canadian children’s and youth media. 

  “We want to thank the YMA’s on behalf of the entire Xavier Riddle crew. Brad Meltzer and Chris Eliopoulos had a brilliant idea for a show that would help kids learn about what goes into becoming real-life hero, and show them that each and every one of us has what it takes to change the world! It’s a wonderful message to get behind, and we’re grateful to have our work on this amazing series recognized with this award! A huge congratulations to our incredible crew at 9 Story and Brown Bag Films, and to all our fantastic partners who helped us bring our Xavier Riddle adventures to life.
