This contest has been in the planning stages for some time but the go-ahead came only recently. Each region will conduct a Student Branch Website Contest and the top three regional entries will be submitted to a SAC Judging panel. These thirty entries will be judged and receive the following awards: 5 Gold Award Winners at $200 each, 10 Silver Award Winners at $100 each, and 15 Bronze Award Winners at $50 each. The judging criteria and associated scoring weights are content, links/e-mail addresses, originality, ALT tags, graphics, appeal, and load time.
