National Association of Government Webmasters (NAGW) Pinnacle Award winner: 2008

At this year’s National Association of Government Webmasters (NAGW) conference, the city of Minnetonka’s website www.eminnetonka.com received first place in the 2008 Pinnacle Awards for city websites in the medium category (pop. 50,001–100,000), edging out competitors Lawrence, Kan. and Bowling Green, Ky.

The city of Minnetonka’s website was developed entirely in-house. Judges gave Minnetonka the nod for its XHTML strict compliance, organization and function, as well as its attractive design and the “ever-adorable Minnetonka Mike.”

NAGW’s Pinnacle Awards are given to local governments for website excellence. This year’s awards drew more than 60 entrants from NAGW members, competing in three categories based on population. Judges reviewed websites based on team size, content, organization, design, function, accessibility, standards and interactivity.
