Zamzee was awarded the 2012 Gamification Summit award for the Best Use of Gamification in Health and Wellness!

We’re pretty excited about this! As a start-up still in beta mode, it’s great to see the gamification industry recognizing us as an industry leader for our work using play to get kids and families healthy.

In addition to the GSummit Award, Zamzee has also been:

  • Recognized by President Obama as a model social enterprise at the launch of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation;
  • Named a Health Innovator by LAUNCH, a global initiative founded by NASA, USAID, the U.S. Department of State and Nike to identify and support the innovative work poised to contribute to a sustainable future and accelerate solutions to meet urgent challenges facing our society;
  • Nominated for the “Most Innovative Game” award by the 2012 Games for Change Festival;
  • Recognized by the San Mateo County Economic Development Association with the Aspiring Innovator Award.

It’s nice to get a little love!
