google website awards and you'll get a shock, there are tonnes. Many just give an award for applying, where it starts to become meaningless.

I suppose thats why I was keen to get the Escouts Awards up and running again, because the are credible

yup thats the sort of thing i want!

nothing pointless or useless. the Escouts Award is an honor for me! it will always be on my front page and also at the top of my awards page!

on the other hand, to anyone outside of escouts don't really know what it is and don't know what it means to people (just look at Penny!). i would like to credit it with all it deservers by having it on a par with other, more widly reconised awards

with so many rubbish awards out there i dont think it will be long before the escouts awards start getting recognised on a beter scale. like richard says they are credible. Does nayone know how many non scouting sites get submitted if any.

I believe that there are about 5
They belong to resource collections as ell as websites.
1 is linked to a group.

There is nothing stopping non-scouting website from being submitted except the mark scheme for content is used a bit more loosley (sp?)

Anyway if there are alot submissions for non-scouting websites then it will have to be put to the team

please explain what you mean if you are talking about me ?? does it mean that Escouts means alot to me? if so you are very correct thats what motivated me to build a site and thats why i got so frustrated because i wanted the top award !!:bigsmiley

hee hee that is exactly what i ment! if you asked a 'normal' web developer (as in one who doesn't know about escouts) what an escouts award ment they would probably look at you blankly. however, things like art space award...thats a little different (if you had an escouts award on every scout website and an art space award as well it would make it look like it was worth as much or even more than that). i would suggest that your site Penny would diserve ANY award mentioned above (and hopefully below as well!)
