Search for Best Local Government Website
Just got a letter from the Director of the NCC (National Computer Center) inviting me to be one of the panel of judges for the 2006 Search for Best Local Government Website as part of NCC’s eLGU Project.
I didn’t know there was something like this going on but with a quick search I found their website here.
The contest, which officially started last July 24, 2006 with the call for submission of entries is aimed at encouraging LGUs to establish and maintain an official site in the World Wide Web. It is also meant to inspire other LGUs to continue to enhance their sites and improve the delivery of online services to the public.
I guess this is one way to promote and motivate local government offices to have their online presence make known to their constituents. How about a blog then? *heh*
Oh wait, the letter also mentioned that this project is in partnership with the Asian Institue of Journalism and Communication adn the Philippine Web Awards. Hmmm, I wonder if this is part of the Webby’s category on e-Governance. Maybe a special award of sorts? We’ll soon find out.
