The Webbys are one of the leading international awards honoring excellence on the Internet. Established in 1996 during the web's infancy, the Webbys are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a 550-member body of leading web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries, and creative celebrities. These experts select the most distinguished sites, many of which hold promise for application in the social studies classroom. The Webby site offers a search tool through which teachers can explore categories such as activism, art, cultural institutions, government, news, politics, and travel. This article presents Webby Award nominees and winners, as well as their speeches.
