Education.com Receives 2009 WebAward for Outstanding Website

REDWOOD CITY, CA – September 16, 2009

Education.com, a leading web destination for parents of school-aged children, today announced that it has been awarded The Web Marketing Association’s 2009 WebAward for Outstanding Website.   The annual international WebAward is the standards-defining competition that sets website excellence benchmarks for ninety-six industries. Education.com earned high marks in each of Web Marketing Association’s seven criteria for a successful Website: design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology.

“We’re thrilled to receive the 2009 WebAward for Outstanding Website and I congratulate the other companies we join on this year’s prestigious list of winners,” said Ronald Fortune, CEO of Education.com. “I’m particularly excited about the WebAward because it recognizes that while the look of a website and the amount of traffic it gets are critical, they are not the only important factors of its success. Our receipt of this award acknowledges the extraordinary efforts of the entire Education.com team over the last several years. They come to work every day with a commitment to make life better for parents and their kids, and this kind of recognition helps affirm that we’re succeeding in this goal. We share the honor of this award with our partners, advertisers, and investors with whom we work to support parents’ participation in their children’s education.”
 
The 2009 WebAward competition was judged by a team of independent Internet professionals representing a variety of relevant disciplines of website development. Judges included members of the media, advertising executives, site designers, creative directors, corporate marketing executives, content providers and webmasters.  "Each year the WebAwards receives amazing entries from around the world that show impressive creativity and functionality," said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association.
