D214 Website Earns National Recognition

Published: 10/04/2021

District 214 was recently named a winner of the Web Marketing Association’s 2021 WebAwards for Outstanding Achievement in Web Development. Independent judges from around the world reviewed websites from across 96 industries.

Judges lauded D214 Stories as a standout feature, which the District employs as a platform to highlight student and staff achievements throughout the District. The District launched its new website in January 2021 in cooperation with Blackboard Creative Services, which developed the site.

District 214 also introduced at the same time new sites for each of its seven schools: six comprehensive schools and Specialized Schools. Each of these sites is designed to offer ready access to school-specific news, announcements, calendars and resources for students, staff and parents.

While this annual competition does feature an Education category, judges designated District 214’s site as outstanding in competition with sites across all industries.
