The American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME) has recognized Kazoo, an independently published quarterly print magazine for girls, ages 5 to 12, for awards in the categories of General Excellence, Best Print Design, and Best Print Illustration.
Kazoo is nominated for General Excellence-Special Interest, the most prestigious honor in the publishing industry; for Best Print Design for The Brave Issue (#27); and for Best Print Illustration for “Look for the Light” by Lucy Knisley in The Future Issue (#26). Kazoo is the only children’s magazine recognized in 2023.
In 2023, Kazoo published four powerful issues: The Brave Issue (#27), which inspires girls to dream boldly and make their voices heard; The Future Issue (#26), which encourages them to imagine—and build—a better tomorrow; The Ocean Issue (#25), which takes them on a deep dive into the science and secrets of the sea; and The Magic Issue (#24), which sparks their wonder and curiosity about the world. Every 64-page, ad-free issue is filled with visually stunning illustrations, clever comics, powerful fiction, and interactive stories, and each supports Kazoo‘s simple, yet still radical, mission: to celebrate girls for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves.
The three 2023 ASME nods mark Kazoo magazine’s eighth ASME nomination in just seven years, having previously been nominated in 2017, 2019, and 2021 for General Excellence-Special Interest and twice in 2022 for Best Single Topic Issue and Best Illustrated Story. Kazoo won the highest honor in the category of General Excellence-Special Interest in 2019.
This year, 243 national and regional media organizations entered the National Magazine Awards. Finalists and winners will be honored at the annual presentation of the National Magazine Awards at Terminal 5, in New York City, on Tuesday, March 28.
MORE ABOUT KAZOO MAGAZINE:
Kazoo: A Magazine for Girls Who Aren’t Afraid to Make Some Noise is the story of a little quarterly magazine that could. We’re print-only by design, ad-free by choice, and we launched in 2016 after running what was the highest-funded journalism campaign in crowdfunding history. With a full-time staff of one, Kazoo now reaches subscribers in 51 countries worldwide and counts among its contributors Stacey Abrams, Margaret Atwood, Amy Sherald, Greta Thunberg, and others. Our mission is as radical as it is essential: to celebrate girls, 5 to 12, for being strong, smart, fierce and true to themselves.
Representation matters, especially to kids, so celebrating all kinds of girls and women in our pages is not a quota to fill; it’s part of our purpose.

Kazoo Magazine Named a 2023 ASME Finalist in Three Categories
Houston’s first bottled water company launches Hyper Pure, Oxygenated Water in aluminum bottles with zero plastic packaging. A unique approach to bottled water (through their patented system) that replicates the best water nature ever created without exploiting the earth’s most pristine water sources.
HOUSTON, February 24, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Recently launched HOW Water (drinkhowwater.com) is the first bottled water company to launch exclusively in Houston. HOW (Hyperpure Oxygenated Water) has a unique approach to bottled water through their patented system that replicates the best water nature ever created without exploiting the earth’s most pristine water sources. Responsibly (and locally) sourced and sustainably packaged in plastic-free 100% aluminum right here in Texas. They have a big mission with a tiny footprint.
“It’s exciting to launch the first-ever water brand that started in the Bayou City,” Founder, CEO, and proud Houstonian Robert Peebler says. “I am looking forward to reaching the Houston community whom we can positively impact by bringing them the healthiest bottled water while protecting the environment. I can’t think of a better place to launch than Houston, where people love new ideas and groundbreaking businesses. I hope that Houstonians will see it the same way.”
Their product is for the consumer searching for one of the best-tasting waters in the world, with a smooth, silky taste and impurity free. With the company’s focus on sustainability, the bottles are made from infinitely recyclable aluminum and sourced from local Texas water versus the exploitation of earth’s most precious freshwater resources (unlike most other bottled water).
“We want our consumers to understand that by drinking HOW Water, they can reduce plastic pollution in our landfills, oceans, and bayous (where much of single-source plastic water bottles end up) and eliminate ingesting microplastics into their own bodies.”
Plastic pollution has become a household topic, but the dangers of microplastics have only recently been recognized as a long-term health threat and potentially even more dangerous for children. HOW chose the more expensive path of bottling in aluminum versus plastic in the belief that, although it’s more costly, it’s the right choice for both the environment and its customers.
HOW Water is bottled by Eventide Waters in Mineral Wells, TX. HOW’s licensed patented technology has been uniquely installed to convert normal municipal water into the water nature intended.
About HOW Water:
Hyperpure Oxygenated Water (HOW) is an oxygenated water brand whose proprietary process begins with stripping out the impurities in water to the nano level until it reaches a state of hyperpurity. Utilizing a patented system that enriches the water with oxygen and the perfect number of electrolytes to achieve optimal taste, HOW is bottled in infinitely recyclable aluminum for better bottled water that is good for both the consumer and the environment.
