WWE wins twice at the 8th Annual Shorty Awards
The winners of the 8th Annual Shorty Awards have been announced, and WWE has the honor of receiving two awards: Co-winner of the Best Social Good Campaign for Connor’s Cure, and Gold Honor of Best in Entertainment for social media presence.
The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media by recognizing the influencers, brands and organizations on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, Snapchat, Vine and more.
Connor’s Cure shares the honor of winning Best Social Good Campaign along with The Ad Council and R/GA’s Love Has No Labels. Connor’s Cure was created in 2014 by Paul “Triple H” Levesque and Stephanie McMahon to honor the irrepressible spirit of a special little boy, Connor Michalek, an 8-year-old who lost his battle with pediatric cancer. Connor’s Cure is a fund at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh that has raised nearly $1 million and assisted more than 100 families around the world.

WWE’s Gold Honor in Best in Entertainment is dedicated to the Social Team that turns platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Periscope — among many others — into essential components for WWE's comprehensive sports-entertainment experience.
