College students are a pretty smart bunch -- that's why they're in college, right? And just like some students balance everything from classes and work to family drama and relationships, some students manage and run websites on top of everything else.
Some sites might be aimed at providing income for the creator(s); some might be educational in nature; others still might be providing a unique service. No matter their function, however, there are some pretty amazing websites out there that are run for students, by students.
The timeline for the 2013 Readers' Choice Awards was as follows:
- Nominations were accepted from January 14 - February 11, 2013

While this page was where nominations were originally accepted, the nomination phase has now closed.
Based on results from the nomination phase, four finalists advanced to the voting stage. You can read their individual profiles or learn more about UVM Bored, the 2013 winner for "Best Website for Students by Students!"
