Tobacco buyout site wins national award

North Carolina State University's tobacco buyout web site won a first place for web page development from the National Agricultural Alumni and Development Association (NAADA). The site is designed to help quota holders, growers, financial and legal advisors, and financial institutions understand the $9.6 billion tobacco buyout and its impact.

The site was developed by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences' Advancement unit, Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Department of Communication Services.

Among the contributors to the site are Steve Watt, the College's director of gift planning; Dana Babbs, graphic designer; and Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics faculty members Blake Brown, Mike Walden, Arnie Oltmans, Ted Feitshans and Guido van der Hoeven.
