Each contest year, the Section Activity Committee of the National Association of Rocketry presents a Website Excellence Award for the top four Section websites. The winners are announced at NARAM and are presented with plaques. They also earn the right to display the award results on their website along with the appropriate Website Award Burst.
Unlike the LAC Newsletter Award, no submissions are required. The only requirement for a Section to be eligible for an award is to have a link to their website entered on the NAR website as part of their Section listing. The websites are viewed and judged each year and winners are selected just prior to NARAM.
The Website Award Program Manager is the Section Activities Chairman.
