In the early days of the net, the few sites that were online frequently granted awards to the few sites that they thought were excellent. Because this site was online about a year after the worldwide web came to existence, it received many awards- some notable, and others not so notable. It is unfortunate that the Internet Archive didn't start archiving sites until 1996. There were some incredible sites in the early days that are gone and will never be seen again. My personal favorite was Uncle Bob's Kid's Page. How I wish I had saved this site to my hard drive.
At any rate, later on, the awards granted this site were given by more popular sites and corporations. I was excited when Newsweek magazine, as well as other national publications posted positive reviews of the site. The awards have trickled off as fewer and fewer sites take the time to grant these awards. This site itself granted its own award at one time.
