VHS Team Wins NJIT Web Design Competition

By on March 25, 2014

CompSciLifeSavers-TeamA team from Verona High School has won first place in the annual NJIT Web Design Competition. More than 400 students competed in the two categories of the competition.

The competition required teams to create educational Web sites following professional design guidelines without the use of a template, generating wizard, content management system or any other pre-built code. The Verona team consisted of Maddie Meyer, a senior, and juniors Dan Watabe, Sam Marcillo-Gomez and Larry Studwell. They designed a site to provide computer coding tips and advice to fellow students, called “CompSci LifeSavers – When Coding Sucks”. Sites were judged on content, format and functionality and, of course technical competency.

There’s no money for winning this competition, but the bragging rights are quite nice. Information on the top three finishers in both categories should be on the NJIT Web site soon.CompSciLifeSavers

    Fantastic! We need to promote more engineering opportunities in our schools, since it will be even more important in the future.
