Date: 14 September 2006
Subject: Schools website competition launch
Venue: Jersey Telecom’s Network Operations Centre
There will not be any speakers and therefore no CPD. This event will be more of a PR launch whereby children from various schools are invited to participate in the launch event during the daytime.
With the support of the States Education, Sport and Culture department, BCS Jersey is organising a competition for all school children to design a web site, either as part of a small team or as individuals. The competition will run from 14th September 2006 until Friday 4th May 2007, with a prize giving ceremony for children, teachers and parents in late June 2007. There will be lots of technical prizes for the school, team and individual entrants (such as Canon camera and printing kits, PDAs and USB memory sticks) and all students who enter will receive recognition. The prize giving ceremony will also be attended by local celebrities and dignitaries and it is hopeful that senior BCS representatives from the UK will also attend.
BCS Jersey would like to thank the following organisations for providing sponsorship and support for this initiative: Jersey Telecom, PBS and Canon, TCB Consulting, the States Education, Sport and Culture ,and Economic Development departments.
