Takecaredownthere.org won the 2009 award for best health website in the Webbys. The Webbys are awards for top websites in terms of aesthetics, usability, design, functionality and more. To quote the award-givers themselves:
With nearly 70 categories, Website entries make up the majority of Webby Awards Winners, Nominees and Honorees. Some are beautiful to look at and interact with. Others are a testament to usability and functionality. And a handful excel across the board. To be selected among the best is an incredible achievement worthy of praise — and perhaps a little bragging.
Take Care Down There is a fantastic site with simple, fun, educational videos aimed at teens and young adults. It has a fresh design with bright colours but there’s not a lot going on so it’s easy on the eye too.
These tools are great for helping young people to learn about awkward issues like STDs and it’s refreshing to see that a website doesn’t have to be complex to be effective.
