|Thus Ole Sam began a tale, which is true and not mythology about Donna Snyder and the American Association of Webmasters which was established in the Golden Age of Award programs in 2002 and from the inception, successfully gained a reputation of fairness, professionalism and openness to all who sought recognition from a dedicated group which gained not just an award graphic, but validation for adhering to sound principles, evidenced by meeting award program rubrics.|
Donna Snyder grew up as an Irish catholic girl, from a family of 9 brothers and sisters. With that many brothers and sisters, she learned quickly to fend for herself and to be independent. Donna has been an Entrepreneur for 21 years, starting her
|own licensed Daycare Center when she was 22 years old and a young single mother. |
|At times she cared for 12 children at once! Donna ran a registered daycare for many years. It was in 1998 when Donna started showing an interest in the Internet and Web Design. She moved to Arizona in 1998 with her two beautiful children and got married to her wonderful military husband George in 2000.|
In 2000 after developing her own personal website and websites for family and friends, she decided to launch her own design firm which she still runs today- World Wide Web Designs.
After receiving many awards for her own web design site, she decided that giving awards would be even more fun then receiving them. From there came the Launch of American Association Of Webmasters in 2002, which started out with a small award program that has grown to be bigger then herself and has had thousands of applications. (More then 30,000 with both of her award programs).
She is also owner of World Wide Web Awards; both award programs are well known and respected globally. Donna has been honored and has been mentioned or featured in hundreds of press articles to this date. The best part of what she has created with the AAWM is that many of her award winners have gained recognition from their jobs, have gotten pay raises, bonuses, grants and more as a result of receiving the AAWM Award.
