NOAA Climate.gov Wins Two Webbys for Award-Winning Site

FALLS CHURCH, Va. – June 10, 2014 – 2020 Company, an Acentia company, congratulates the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on its recent Webby wins for the Agency’s Climate.gov site. The site won in the Government and Green categories and was also selected as the People’s Voice Award Winner in the Green category.

 

Climate.gov includes news and information about climate trends, new science results, interactive maps, and learning resources. The goals of the site are to promote public understanding of climate science and climate-related events, and to make NOAA’s data products and services easy to access and use. Other goals of the site include providing support to the private sector and the Nation’s economy by helping people manage their climate-related risks and opportunities, and improve their resilience to extreme events.

 

“We at NOAA are thrilled that Climate.gov has won these prestigious awards,” said David Herring, Director of Communication and Education in NOAA’s Climate Program Office. “To be selected as the best in class in both the Government and Green categories is fantastic. This accomplishment is due to an outstanding level of cross-agency teamwork and collaboration—from our world-class scientists to our talented web developers, data visualizers, and science writers. It has been a privilege to work with this amazing team.”

 

2020 is one of the leading contractors that helps provide support services to the award-winning NOAA website through web developers, writers, and video production experts.

 

“We are honored to be able to contribute to this exceptional website that serves as an authoritative source for timely news and scientific data about our climate,” said Acentia Sector Executive David Shuping. “Working on Climate.gov has been a great experience for our team, and we look forward to continuing to support this important work.”
