It’s kind of a big deal.
The Webby Awards is the Internet’s most respected symbol of success. This year, close to 13,000 entries were received from nearly all 50 states and 65 countries worldwide. And UNCSA is a top five finalist in its category.
The Internet's highest honor.

You might recognize some of the 2016 executive judges: Arianna Huffington and Kevin Spacey will review entries, along with the founder of Tumblr, co-founder of Twitter, co-founder of Reddit and others.
What you need to do.
Vote! You may vote once - now through Thursday, April 21, at 11:59 p.m. PST. Look to the bottom right corner of your screen and you’ll see a Webby icon that tells you what place UNCSA is currently in for People’s Voice. Until it says 1st Place, there is work to be done.
After you’ve voted, tell others to do the same. There is an incredible amount of power in spreading the word, especially because UNCSA is a small school up against the big dogs. Ask your friends, family, and all of your Facebook buddies that you never speak to in real life to vote for UNCSA. Tweet it out. E-mail your co-workers. Call your dentist. Every vote matters.
Why this matters.
The UNCSA website showcases the vast talent of UNCSA students, features alumni who are excelling in their fields, highlights esteemed faculty in every school, and is an important hub of information for the UNCSA community. A recognition for the website is a recognition for UNCSA.
