Connections Media is thrilled to announce that for the fourth consecutive year our work on behalf of our clients has been recognized for merit by the Webby Awards.
ParentToolkit.com - a website created by Connections Media in partnership with NBC News’ Education Nation - is a nominee for Best Website in the Family/Parenting category in the 19th Annual Webby Awards, a competition that celebrates the best content on the Internet.
This is the second time in as many years that ParentToolkit.com has been recognized by the Webby Awards. The site won a Webby in 2014 for Best Website in the Family/Parenting category, and could win its second consecutive award in the same category when final awards are announced April 27th.
This also marks the fourth successive year Connections Media's work has been recognized by the Webby Awards. In 2012, our firm's work on behalf of NBC News’ Education Nation won a Webby Award for the Events and Live Webcasts category. In 2013 Education Nation was recognized as an Honoree in the Social Media Education and Discovery category. In 2014, our work on behalf of Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge was recognized as an honoree in the category of Best Website in the Charitable Organization/Non-profit category.
ParentToolkit.com is produced by NBC News’ Education Nation and sponsored by Pearson. The site is designed to provide parents with effective tips and tools to help guide their children’s development in school and beyond the classroom, from Pre-K through high school. ParentToolkit.com was developed with national experts ranging from teachers and professors to doctors and parents to provide the best resources possible.
The Webby Awards are widely regarded as the top international awards recognizing Internet industry leaders and are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS). They are judged by a panel that includes web experts, business executives, and creative professionals. The 2015 Webby Awards received nearly 13,000 entries from all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
Congratulations to Pearson and NBC’s Education team for their continued distinction of Internet excellence. Connections Media is proud to contribute to such an important initiative and have our work recognized by the Webby Awards.
