Lilian Mongeau, Ryan Alexander-Tanner and John Osborn D'Agostino | The Hechinger Report

“Finding a Good Preschool Isn’t Easy: Try It.”

About the Entry

To better understand the challenge parents face, The Hechinger Report created an illustrated, interactive story called Preschool Challenge. Stepping into the shoes of a parent, readers try to determine where to send their child, whether they can afford tuition, and what they are willing to put up with once their child is enrolled.

Comments From the Judges

“This is a really creative idea, well implemented. … It’s definitely engaging and touches on a very important topic in a unique way.”

“An intriguing and original concept. The idea of getting readers to put themselves in the shoes of parents who may or may not be like themselves is a meaningful exercise.”
