The Award-Winning Website
Huh, I was kind of expecting a bit more. :suprised:
ya pretty lame
wow, was entry to the contest limited to eigth graders?
I bet she got paid to say that...
I think for a young kid its a great site. I remember when I was back in her grade; all I could do was turn the computer on :s
congratulations you can use Frontpage
I mean its nice that they are trying, but honestly thats appalling. No doctype, 41 HTML 4 errors. Evil animated gifs. Someone do that girl a favour and convince her to proceed down a different path....
I am now of course wondering what the other submissions looked like if this is the one that won..
I dont mean to be cruel or anything, and given age and experience its probably a respectable effort, but the internet community as a whole needs to aspire to a higher degree of quality
I JUST came back to post that
According to the quote by muzikool she only won in the Jr. High division. Here Jr. High is grade 7,8,9 (maybe it's different there) either way that probably narrows the options a bit.
i guess if ur in grade 8 thats impressive.
my first ever webpage was back in 97...
time to embarass myself.
the web host i was on had just converted to graphic based browsing... the site was for some hockey pool i had....
nowadays..php woulda made that look sooo much better. lol. instead of taking excel screenshots...
enjoy that piece of trash.
I think 'most' Web Design Awards should be changed to Web Content Awards as this is what they mostly award sites on. That and ease of navigation.
If you go past the look of the site, it is pretty easy to find what your looking for and I'm sure it is informative regarding it's subject matter.
It's still a decent effort for someone at 14. I've seen much older students who are in web/IT courses do worse.
FRONTPAGE SHOULD BE BANNED!!!
I was honestly expecting some kick-ass site, but I was presented with and average site instead.
Admittedly I didn't read the content but the over all look does not impress. Although saying that I have seen a number of other pages about learning for kids, school pages and others and it does beat most of them.
Eighth grade isn't really that young. I've seen quite a bit of talent in that age group here.
Exactly. I know there are plenty of 8th graders who can do much more.
<title>New Page 1</title>
just about the very first thing i do on a website
Pffft. You just use some jank software for your pages. *points at IPB*
yeah well *thinks of responce*
At least the eighth-grader can spell properly.
Its better then my first ever website bt its jsut a frontpage template.... MS should sue her.
when I was 14 I was already running a respected website
