Today the Disruptt family would like to extend a very enthusiastic congratulations to our very own, Max Stossel! This year Max’s incredibly powerful spoken-word poem This Panda is Dancing – Time Well Spent received what the New York Times describes as “the internet’s highest honor” – a Webby Award.
While Max’s work frequently goes viral, this award speaks volumes not just about its popularity, but about its quality. Of 13,000 entries from over 70 countries, Max won the majority of 3.5 million votes – an incredible achievement – and we can’t think of anyone more deserving.
Max, you continue to inspire us. Congratulations, we can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
