Congratulations MapQuest on Your Webby Award!

When nominations for the 20th Annual Webby Awards honoring the best of the Web were announced by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and AOL racked up four nominations and three honorees, we were excited to be recognized for bringing to life some of the year's best content and experiences.

And now we're thrilled to congratulate MapQuest on their big win in the Social: Humor category for #AvoidTrump. The MapQuest team built the #AvoidTrump map to provide tips on how to "be Trump" or "flee him" in cities across the country. MapQuest was nominated alongside Funny or Die, Conan O'Brien and The Onion in this category.

Congrats to all of the AOL nominees! To check MapQuest out, you can download their app, or follow them on Twitter.
