A projection of the Bowdoin home page was the backdrop for the presentation of the 2005 Non-Profit Winner trophy.

The Bowdoin College Web site was recently named among the "best of the web" at the MESDA 2005 Technology Awards, a ceremony honoring Maine's top technology companies.

MESDA, Maine's software and information technology industry association, and Interface Tech News, northern New England's leading technology newspaper, presented awards in eleven categories at the July 14, 2005, ceremony. The gala event, also known as "Geeks in Black," was held at the new MESDA Technology Center in Westbrook, Maine.

Bowdoin's Web site was named tops in the Non-Profit best-of category.

Representing Bowdoin's "in-house design team," Web Designer Robert Denton and Multimedia Designer Kevin Travers were on hand to accept the award. In his acceptance remarks, Denton thanked Bowdoin's senior staff for their support, and acknowledged colleagues who worked to create a Web site that successfully promotes "an academically and intellectually alive institution."

According to the MESDA Web site, the annual technology awards "showcase the progress and recognize the accomplishments and significant contributions of the software and information technology industry over the past year. The event allows MESDA the opportunity to highlight outstanding achievements and success stories from technology firms across the state."
