Donna Snyder - Founder AAWM

As CEO and Founder of the American Association of Webmasters,  I would like to extend a thank you from the entire group to everyone who has visited the AAWM website and invested their time in submitting applications for our various Awards.
The honor has truly been ours to visit and evaluate the thousands of wonderful web sites that have been submitted to us since we began. 

I would also like to pass my personal thanks to our Evaluation Panel, and the people who have taken time out of their busy schedules to help in the process of judging and awarding the accolades to "America's Finest Webmasters and Designers". Even though we are the American Association of Webmasters, given the "global nature" of the internet medium - it has been our policy that all countries should be welcome to apply for "The American Association of Webmasters Awards" and we too have been honored to visit and award these international sites.

We invite you to take the time and check out some of the incredible award winners listed on our awards pages. Winners links may be found on our navigation at the top of our pages.
