The Peabody Awards made the following statement on why they chose Steven Universe as this year’s Children’s and Youth winner:

“On its surface, Rebecca Sugar’s animated series develops a complex mythology centering around the Crystal Gems — “polymorphic sentient rocks” who protect young Steven and his human friends from cosmic threats. But in this earnest fantasy epic and superhero saga, empathy is perhaps the most important superpower, something our real-world human society needs now more than ever.”

Congratulations to Rebecca Sugar and the Crewniverse for winning the Children’s And Youth Peabody Award, the 78th Annual Peabody Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday 18th May at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
