Best Education Websites to be Named by Web Marketing Association in 23rd Annual WebAward Competition.

Boston, MA, March 25, 2019 --( The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best education Websites in the world as part of their 23rd annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including education, schools and university websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful web site. The deadline for education websites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2019.

"The education industry is very competitive when it comes to Web development and need to be because of the expectations of their young consumers," said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. "Education web sites tend target youth and their parents. Students today have grown up with the Internet and expect a lot to be impressed from an educational institution."

Education Websites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use. Each WebAward entry in the Education category is judged against other education entries and then against an overall standard of excellence.

All education entrants benefit from receiving valuable feedback in terms of their specific criteria scores compared against the average scores for their industry. They also may receive specific comments from the WebAward's professional judging panel on their Web site development efforts.

Winners of a WebAward in the education categories will also receive:

* Handsome statue or certificate of achievement

* Increased visibility for their company

* Marketing opportunity to promote the company website to the media

* Links to your site from the highly ranked WebAward site to help SEO

* A highlight for your resume.
