Vote for us! Checkology is nominated for a Webby Award


Move over “Oppenheimer,” the News Literacy Project’s Checkology® digital learning platform is in the running for top honors in The Webby Awards, the Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences’ signature awards program.

Graphic says "Checkology is a Webby nominee!" with "Vote for us!" in big block letters. There is a URL link for "". At the bottom right corner are the logos for the News Literacy Project and the 28th annual Webby Awards.

Checkology, our field-defining news literacy product, is one of five finalists in the websites and mobile sites category Responsible Information. Just being nominated is a big win. Our entry was one of 13,000 projects from around the world vying for honors in this category.

Even better, NLP has two chances to come out on top: The Webby Award, which is chosen by the Academy itself, and The Webby People’s Voice Award, which the public chooses. “Both awards are a mark of international distinction for Internet excellence,” the academy’s president Claire Graves wrote in when notifying us that Checkology was a finalist.

Here’s where you come in. The public voting period has begun and is open until Thursday, April 18, at 11:59 PDT. Please visit the Webby site to cast your vote for Checkology today. It’s quick and easy.

The academy will announce the winners on Tuesday, April 23, and will celebrate the honorees at the 28th Annual Webby Awards gala hosted by Amber Ruffin on Monday, May 13 in New York City.

Thank you for supporting NLP and a future founded on facts.
