Utah.gov Ranked #1 in Best of the Web

The Center for Digital Government has given the Utah.gov portal first place in the "state government portal category." The Center's 2003 Best of the Web contest based this award on its innovation, Web-based delivering of government services, efficiency, economy, and functionality for improved citizen access.

Cathilea Robinett, executive director of the Center for Digital Government and a Best of the Web judge for all of its eight years, said "Utah has a beautiful Web site that is easy to navigate and offers a variety of online services. It has a live 24/7 customer-service help function, the most advanced common look-and-feel features in the nation, dynamic content, and a large amount of online services. Utah has historically been a leader in digital government." She added "Capturing first-place in the Best of the Web contest reflects its true commitment to the citizens and businesses of the state."

Congratulations to Utah Interactive and all of those of you involved in producing content and products for the portal.
