The SchoolE Awards aims to recognize not only the best in school district website design and strategy, but also districts whose community rallies around the website, said Lindsay Magruder, SchoolE Awards coordinator.
"This year's contest was so much bigger and better than last year's contest," said Magruder. "The SchoolE website received hits from more than 60 countries and tens of thousands of people. The districts in this year's contest got so much exposure, which is one of the biggest goals of the SchoolE Awards: to give these districts the recognition they deserve."
