Announcing — The 2013 Blue Ribbon Awards!

blueribbonaward2013smWow! It’s hard to believe that another Crew year has come to an end already. It’s been a busy, fun, inspiring year with 86 wonderful companies sharing their products with our team!

We are so grateful for the honor of getting to know all of these companies through these opportunities, and today we’d like to share our choices for the 2013 Blue Ribbon Awards! This year, we are handing out 38 Blue Ribbons, to a total of 28 companies!

Since the beginning of the Schoolhouse Review Crew, we have taken time at the end of our year to vote for our very favorite products. It’s not an easy thing to do, choosing a favorite from among so many greats, and trust me when I say, there was crazy competition, with some of these awards won by the margin of just a vote or two.

I hope you enjoy reminiscing with us. If you click on the company names below, you will be taken to our reviews of the products we are honoring today.
