Inconvenient Youth Wins International Web Award
Inconvenient Youth (IY) has won a Silver W3 Award for its interactive environmental awareness website, http://www.inconvenientyouth.org. IY aims to engage youth in proactive and educational activities to confront the harmful effects of climate change. Inconvenient Youth is an online forum where visitors can create user profiles and share their ideas and actions.
The Silver W3 Award winning website, built by Nashville’s MMA Creative, was created to encourage youth to participate in the global climate change conversation. Users can post ideas and share stories about how they are getting involved in the movement.
The W3 Awards honor creative excellence on the web. Now in its fifth year, the W3 Awards received over 3,000 entries. The entries, submitted by companies all over the world, are judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts and are scored on a 10-point scale. Winners receive Gold, Silver or Best in Show awards.
