WolfQuest and AZA

Post by WQ Coordinator » Thu Sep 16, 2010 7:58 am

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!
Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!

Because some of you potentially used your real names for the name that shows above each video, I won't post who made which video, but you are welcome to point out which video is yours if you would like. If you would prefer to stay anonymous, I'll leave that up to you. But I will say that the top two videos in this list are the two winners (the others are in no particular order). I numbered them in case people want to claim which video is theirs.

Congratulations to the team and everybody involved in the making of WolfQuest! Good to hear that the conference went well- perhaps we will get a few more grants and donations from people because of this award.
