NASA, JPL Websites Win Webby Awards
Three NASA sites have won awards in the 14th Annual Webby Awards -- the leading international honor for the world's best websites. NASA.gov was the People's Voice Winner for Government, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory was the People's Voice Winner in the science category for its Global Climate Change site. NASA Home & City Version 2.0 won the juried competition for Government.
A fourth NASA site, Kepler: The Search for Habitable Planets, was designated an official honoree in the science category. The Kepler site was created by teams at JPL and NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif.
Presented by The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, The Webby Award recognizes excellence in technology and creativity. The Academy created the awards in 1996 to help drive the creative, technical, and professional progress of the Internet and evolving forms of interactive media. The winners were announced online May 4, 2010.
While members of The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences select the winners for the Webby Awards, the online community determines the winners of the People's Voice Awards.
