Webby Award for American Museum of Natural History's Water Exhibit?

The groundbreaking museum exhibit is also breaking ground online, too.
Who knew that a museum exhibit could also spur also a Webby Award? The Web site for the amazing exhibit, Water: H2O=Life, that opened this fall at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, has now been nominated for the Webby People's Voice awards.

You can read all about the exhibit in our review of it here. But, in a nutshell, it is all about teaching people how precious a resource water really is, how to understand better how much we use and why it is so threatened, and of course, what we can do to protect it.

Even if you haven't seen the exhibit, which will be leaving New York at the end of May and traveling around North American (and overseas), you can check out the interactive Web site.

And then if you like it, give it a vote here. Winners will be announced May 6. Once on the site, click on "Website," "Society," "Science," and then "Water: H2O=Life."
