Bob Schneider, the administrator of the Astronomical League Webmaster Award, announced the winners of the group’s annual contest.

First place goes to Del Gordon of the Huachuca Astronomy Club. Besides providing information about the club and its events, he uses the site to promote the people in the club. “I believe that the people are what make the club,” Gordon told Astronomy.

In the future, he wants to improve the site’s interactivity and encourage members to participate in the message board and write news stories.

The runners-up include Chas Rimpo of the Howard Astronomical League and Richard Richins of the Astronomical Society of Las Cruces.

If you are a member of an organization that belongs to the Astronomical League and have a worthy web site, keep this award in mind. You can enter for the 2009 award between January 1 and April 30, 2009, with Bob Schneider.
