The Center for Digital Government presented Glynn County, Ga., a 2012 Best of the Web award for the county's official website. The website redesign, completed this year, was judged a finalist based on visual appeal, integration of social media icons and consistent navigation. Online services, including "My Connections," offer quick access in plain language. Attention to security, and the GIS catalog of services and open data were judged very impressive. In addition, Quick Response Codes in parks link to websites with more information about those parks.

In its 17th year, the Best of the Web (BOW) awards recognize outstanding government portals and websites based on innovation, functionality and efficiency. Entries were reviewed and judged by a panel of national experts.

The Center for Digital Government, based in Folsom, Calif., is a national research and advisory institute on information technology policies and best practices in state and local government. The Center is a division of e.Republic, a national publishing, event and research company. Governing, Government Technology and Public CIO are three of their best-known publications.
