 The Web is the most transformable invention of our time. This competition features the creation of high-quality, well-designed and original Web sites, while seeking to identify and encourage future talent in this area.

We invite you to participate in the fifth annual New Jersey Web Design Competition (High School Section). Any high school may field one or more teams of 3-4 students. The competition challenges you to create or improve Web sites according to established design specifications. You will compete with the best and brightest of your high school peers, receive guidance from professionals, and could win cash awards.

The Design Competition is sponsored by the Information Systems Department at NJIT’s College of Computing Sciences, and will be held at NJIT’s attractive University Heights Campus in Newark. The nationally accredited Information Systems Department focuses on the design and analysis of web systems and how people interact with them, software development, multimedia integration into gaming, wireless activities, and applications for business decision-making.

Two ways to participate:

High schools can send a maximum of 8 teams of 3-4 students. Each team can participate in either category:

  1. (Category 1: in advance) Web Information System Design- Teams prepare an educational web site based on a set of professional design guidelines. Teams submit their designs a couple of weeks before the day of competition. In addition Category I students may demonstrate their sites on campus during the event.
  2. (Category 2: real time competition) Rapid Design - On the day of the Design Competition, teams will be given an existing poorly designed web site and a set of design requirements, and must improve the web site to comply with the requirements. A beginning knowledge of web design skills will be expected.
