WellCommons wins national Web award
- on December 6, 2011
Congratulations are in order for you — our WellCommons community.
Last week, the international EPPY Awards, which are presented by Editor & Publisher, honored the best media-affiliated websites in the country.
WellCommons won for Best Community Service on a Media-Affiliated Website with fewer than 250,000 unique monthly visitors.
Websites were judged on their content, browser compatibility, design, functionality, overall impression and usability.
WellCommons is unique because it taps directly into the most important resource in the community: community members. Specifically, those who have a vested interest in health care and wellness, and keeping Kansas healthy, vibrant and safe. Without the passion and dedication you have shown on WellCommons, it would not be the community resource it is.
While we love winning awards — who doesn’t? — the most gratifying thing for us is connecting with our neighbors and knowing that WellCommons truly is a community resource.
We couldn’t have done it without the hundreds of users who help make this online community so great, from posting recipes to participating in our polls. So thank you.
And big round of applause goes out to Karrey Britt, whose untold hours of reporting, writing and connecting with our community helps make WellCommons what it is.
