Hi Janette,

I'd like to nominate our site but I can't find the right category because we are school-based organization, a fraternity. Can we possibly nominate our entry?

Title:Zeta Omega Chapter of Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity & Sorority - U.P. Cebu - Philippines


What makes it outstanding?
1. It's web standards compliant.
2. It offers beneficial content (original and/or re-published articles) to members and non org members.
3. It's updated almost weekly.
4. It's aesthetically appealing

Please, please, please consider.

This endeavor of yours is great, by the way...
