Websites can serve many purposes. They may support existing customers, give information, orpromote products, services, or ideas.

SOME GUIDELINES

Remember, however, there are a variety of browsersthat may attempt to access the site.

REQUIREMENTS

1. The site must have been developed since the conclusion of the last International StudentConvention.

2. No more than two students may participate in the design and development of the site.

3. Site must consist of more than a home page (navigate).

4. Site address must be included on the Judges Form.

Creativity - The site will be evaluated for creativity in the areas of uniqueness, content,approach to the material, and the method of engagement.

Logical Connections - The site must be logical and make sense to specific users. What may belogical to one user may leave another totally lost. For example, a site developed for teens wouldbe very different from one for retirees, just as one for travel is very different from one onfinance.

Engaging Appearance - The site should be attractive, pleasing, interesting, and beneficial. Thetime an average user will give a site is a matter of seconds unless it engages the viewer visuallyand mentally.

Elements (Variety and Appropriateness) - The site should contain enough variety to holdinterest while maintaining an overall consistency that reflects the purpose and desired image ofthe site. It should conform to the Biblical values and overall Convention guidelines regardingappropriateness of subject matter, substance, graphics, etc.

Browser-friendly - The site should be fully functional on multiple browsers and viewable on asmany computers as possible. Several browsers are in wide use; however, the older the browseris that can access your site, the less robust the elements are and the more limited the creativitycan be.

Graphic Design - The site should follow generally accepted Internet standards regardingpresentation. Some of these regard font style, spacing, overlay, and other aspects of thepresentation. There are helpful sites on the Web to learn about these items.

CONTENT

Clear - For the site to be effective, the content must be clear in its presentation, navigation,functionality, and purpose.

Appropriate - The content of the site should meet the convention guidelines and standards andbe appropriate for its intended purpose. Any Scripture reference listed must be from the KingJames Version. All subject matter (photos) must meet the A.C.E. dress and appearanceguidelines.

HINTS FROM THE JUDGES

Size is not part of the judging criteria! More is not necessarily better. However, there must besome navigation in the site. It is important that a site distinguish itself through quality and valueto the user as compared to other sites competing for the same audience. The point values injudging are weighted in favor of the structural organization because that is essential to sitefunctionality and usefulness. Poor content is changeable, but poor design is the death of a site.
