Monthly Awards

Every month, children have the chance to win awards based on their use of the program. Each award will have a different theme and goal, depending on the age of your child. If all the goals are completed in the month, they’ll win a digital award to add to their Night Zookeeper profile.

Every month, new projects are added by the Night Zookeeper team to the ‘Projects’ section of the program. The projects vary from challenging children to create new characters for the Night Zookeeper book, or submitting their own game ideas for the program!
