The 17th annual Sentinel Awards took place last night, Wednesday 28th September, and we're delighted to see Doc McStuffins has won the Sentinel award for Children's Program for the 'Selfless Snowman' episode!
In the episode our favourite toy doctor announces the idea of a "stuffing drive" to help toys in need of stuffing from donors with matching stuffing DNA.
Since 1999, the Sentinel Awards have honored TV shows and movies that educate and motivate viewers to make choices for healthier and safer lives. Entries from broadcast, cable and streaming network shows showcase a diverse range of topics that include substance abuse, mental health, reproductive health, climate change and many more.
The awards are sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and presented by HH&S, a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center and a one-stop shop for writers and producers in search of accurate information on public health and climate change topics.
