Transparency Effort Wins Award, Loses White House Embrace

Two Environmental Protection Agency employees won an award this week for building a website to shed light on how the U.S. government operates. The workers behind the design are being hidden from view.

The EPA informed the sponsoring group that the two designers who created a web portal, Tim Crawford and Larry Gottesman, can’t accept the honor in person, said Rick Blum, coordinator of the Sunshine in Government Initiative, a coalition of media groups that sponsor the award.
