The creators of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Web site "Coastal Habitat in Puget Sound (CHIPS)" were honored recently for winning a National Association of Government Communicators' 2008 Gold Screen Award of Excellence for their Web site. The National Association of Government Communicators sponsors the annual Blue Pencil & Gold Screen Awards Competition, which recognizes superior government communications products and their producers in 47 categories. Blue Pencil Award categories are designed for writing and print-related products; Gold Screen Award categories are reserved for audiovisual and multimedia products, including broadcast-related products and Web sites. The winners—the USGS Tacoma Publishing Service Center, Bill Gibbs, Bobbie Richey, and John Clemens—received their awards in spring 2008 and were recognized again at the USGS 2008 Western Region Awards Ceremony, held February 24, 2009, in Menlo Park, California.

Learn more about CHIPS from the award-winning Web site and from a podcast interview with Rick Dinicola, CHIPS hydrologist, conducted by John Clemens for the USGS CoreCast series (URL http://www.usgs.gov/corecast/details.asp?ID=59).
