Computerworld Smithsonian
The STARBRIGHT FOUNDATION's online community - STARBRIGHT World - was the recipient of the 1999 Computerworld Smithsonian Award in the Media and Technology category. US Interactive created the private Internet-based system in conjunction with several leading companies, including Sprint and Intel Corporation.

The Web site helps The STARBRIGHT FOUNDATION, a nonprofit organization, extend its mission of enhancing the quality of life of seriously ill children and their families. By creating a true online community, STARBRIGHT World links seriously ill children from their hospital beds to their peers across the country so they can help each other cope with the day-to-day realities of living with illness. And with rich graphics, functionality, and entertaining content, the site handles sensitive health issues in a way that appeals to children.

The Computerworld Smithsonian Awards program was founded in 1989 on the basis of searching for, and recognizing, instances where vision and leadership are demonstrated through the innovative use of information technology. All nominees become part of the National Museum of American History's permanent record of the information technology revolution and its impact on world culture. The nominees of 1999 included 442 innovators from 40 states and 19 countries.
