( has become the leader in worldwide voting for
"Best Community Web Site" in Internet Awards 2000 (

"This has been a fun competition and we are proud to have received the
most votes in our category so far", said Bob Chapman, the voluntary
webmaster for the organization.  "To receive over 1,500 votes is a
tremendous honor.  We  want to thank everyone who voted for us and
ask other local folks to please visit our site and cast a ballot too."

Nominations and voting will continue through July 2000.  After that,
a panel of 5 independent judges will pick a winner among 10 finalists
in each category, as well as the overall winner who receives a $1,000
advertising campaign on GO-TO.COM - a popular internet search engine.

Many other prizes for category winners as well as a random drawing for
voters will be announced this month.  The I-Awards 2000 contest began
in July 1999 and is planned to be an annual international competition.

Save The Light's web site has won over 200 web design awards since it

The group is also asking individuals and/or businesses with a web site
