Because of the video contest, many of you were aware that one of our Team Members, ZooGuy, went to an Association of Zoos and Aquariums contest this week and presented about WolfQuest (using Kipcha's video). Well, WolfQuest won the Education Award through AZA! While this does not come with a grant or money of any kind, it's a huge honor and we're extremely proud of the WolfQuest Team and Community for making WolfQuest what it is. And who knows, perhaps such a prestigious award will look good in the eyes of future grant givers.
So just wanted to pass this along so you were all aware that WolfQuest, in the eyes of educators and conservationists, is still doing well and it makes us even more excited to release the next episode (2.5) in the next year or so. Woohoo!
Edit: Found more details about the award:
The Association of Zoos and Aquariums recognizes outstanding achievement in educational program design judging programs on their ability to promote conservation knowledge, attitudes and behavior, show innovation, and measure success.
It's officially the 2010 AZA Education Award, given out yearly. Go WolfQuest!
