Too Young to Wed’s website has managed to catch the attention of judges at Awwwards, an online community that recognizes and then promotes the world’s best-designed sites.

It’s a golden opportunity for us to raise the profile of child marriage even more—but we can’t do it without your help, and we’ve only got two days to pull it off.

Here’s how it works: Our site, created by an amazingly talented team at Bluecadet, has been nominated for an Awwwards Site of the Day designation, an honor that could potentially bring thousands of new eyes to the website—and raise the consciousness of visitors who may not otherwise be aware of the plight of child brides.

A professional, international panel of judges at Awwwards will help decide if Too Young to Wed makes the cut, but the decision is also influenced by votes from folks just like you.

To vote, please visit our Awwwards nominee page and click the green vote button. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Facebook or Twitter account (or you can create a new user name and password) and to set up a small profile. The process takes about five minutes, and we’ve only got about two days to log all the votes.

Websites are evaluated based on their design, creativity, usability and content, and those chosen as Site of the Day ultimately end up in the annual book, “The 365 Best Websites Around the World.”

Our site competes with all the other websites nominated during a three-month period, and the competition is stiff. Still, we think the chance to help prevent another 142 million girls from becoming child brides over the next decade is worth the effort. We hope you do too.

Please vote today and urge your friends and family to do the same.
