The Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation is excited to announce its 9th annual MCWTFoundation Website Design Competition for high school girls in Michigan!
High school girls in Michigan are challenged to create a website addressing this year’s theme, "Repurposing: The ultimate in creativity and recycling." It is open ended enough to encourage creativity, thoughtfulness, and a little research.
Student teams can be individuals or groups of two. MCWT Foundation will award monetary prizes, ranging from $50 to $750. Girls may enroll in one of two categories: Beginner or Advanced.
Free optional instruction will be offered in two locations on different Saturdays.
The application deadline is fast approaching: October 1, 2014. The deadline to upload the design entries is November 12, 2014. Winners will be judged not only on the technology used, but also on their creativity and innovation.
Recent winners and finalists have been from Lake Shore HS, Utica Stevenson HS, Ferndale University HS, Salem HS, Mercy HS, Warren Fitzgerald HS, Livonia Franklin, Canton HS, UAIS, Lakeview HS, Farmington HS, Dearborn Center for Math, Science and Technology, Centerline HS, International Academy, Ingham County Computer Science Academy, and many others.
MISSION: The MCWT Foundation is dedicated to inspiring and assisting girls and women in Michigan to pursue technology education and careers. To that end, the Foundation fosters technology aspirations among women, of all ages, throughout Southeastern Michigan to create a sustainable talent pool of women technology leaders for tomorrow.
