The Web design and Development Scholarship is for any high school senior student across the country interested in pursuing graphic design, web design and development or other arts.
Students entering this contest are required to develop a homepage and one interior page for an educational website that does not yet exist on the web. The site does not have to be live, but those that are will be awarded additional points towards final score. These pages must be submitted as an image file (ex. jpeg, pdf, tif.) The site should be related to a school class or club and should reflect a collaborative effort between a “pseudo client” and the student as the designer. The client can be a number of different people, including a teacher, an administrator, or a professional in the field. The student should also include a log of meetings with their client as well as a budget to follow—this should include a simple breakdown of the design, development, hosting and maintenance costs for their site.
A written essay or video is required to describe the process students used to collaborate with their client to ensure their design and/or website met their client’s needs, why they chose this contest, why they deserve the scholarship and how they went above and beyond the requirements. They should also include their future education plans and any other relevant information. A letter of recommendation shall accompany the submission. A student funds release document must be included with the submission. If the final decision on the student’s college choice is not noted, it is the student’s responsibility to resubmit the final document with all the information filled out by June 15, 2014.
A web parameters manual, any additional instructions, general guidelines of the rubric and examples for inspiration will be provided after a student registers online. Students should submit all entry information online.
