The Web Marketing Association handed out its 2009 WebAwards yesterday. I won for my work on the Covenant House Michigan website. It is *possibly* my first award since there’s no telling if my other work has been recognized unbeknownst to me. 😉
Non-profit Standard of Excellence for Outstanding Web Development is a long award title which means we weren’t “best of show” or “best in category.” Still, it’s cool because we scored WELL above average and only missed an “Outstanding Website Award” by 1 point!
The back-end of covenanthousemi.org is all open source and I get to write some custom Drupal code. While I’m the sole developer, Melissa provides all the content with her partner-in-saving-kids’-lives, Maggie. Without the articles, photos, events, and social marketing updates, the site would be less than average, in my opinion.
