Paly Voice wins Webby award

The Paly Voice, an electronic newspaper at Palo Alto High School, won a prestigious Webby Award on Tuesday. The Paly Voice (http://voice.paly.net ) won in the student category, and was the "people's choice" winner in the same category. The Paly Voice beat out student efforts from Arizona State University, Columbia College in Chicago, and Staffordshire University as the other finalists.

Webbies have been given out for the last nine years by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences in New York City. It gives awards in more than 60 categories for best Web pages on the Internet.

Another local Web page was a finalist in another category. A Lucile Packard Children's Health Foundation Web page (http://www.kidsdata.org ) was a finalist in the family/parenting category.
