ABOUT “THE GIRL EFFECT� FROM W+K | Nike Foundation:

“The Girl Effect� is an effort to raise awareness and supply tools to help spread the word and create The Girl Effect ripple. The campaign relays to viewers the idea of Global Giving. The amazing thing we learned from the Nike Foundation is that when girls are given the opportunity, they will raise the standard of living for themselves, their families, and by extension, everyone around them. The Girl Effect is a real phenomenon, and a smart economic investment. The campaign wanted to come up with a name that was empowering to girls—one that felt grounded in the reality of what girls can do.

ABOUT THE “WEBBY AWARDS:�

With nearly 70 categories, Website entries make up the majority of Webby Awards Winners, Nominees and Honorees. Some are beautiful to look at and interact with. Others are a testament to usability and functionality. And a handful excel across the board. To be selected among the best is an incredible achievement worthy of praise -- and perhaps a little bragging. For more info, please see: http://www.webbyawards.com/webbys/current.php?season=13
