WEBSITE DESIGN

NONPERFORMANCE EVENT

Websites can serve many purposes. They may support existing customers, give information, or

promote products, services, or ideas.

SOME GUIDELINES

The Website will be judged real-time over the Internet, so it is more than an academic exercise.

It is to be a fully functioning site that must have a clear, practical purpose, which it pursues with

creativity and skill.

Students are free to use any platform, tools, programs, computer languages, other available

resources, or their own development tools. Remember, however, there are a variety of browsers

that may attempt to access the site.

REQUIREMENTS

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

Convention.

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 Judge’s Form.

5. Any Scripture reference listed must be from the King James Version. All subject matter

(photos) must meet the A.C.E. dress and appearance guidelines.

Possible project areas (These are not limits.)

Informational—Offer or provide information.

PromotionalPromote a school and/or church.

ServiceOffer a service to meet the needs of individuals or groups.

CRITERIA

STRUCTURE

Navigation of SiteThe site should be easy to use and navigate. The user should know where

he is and have the ability to get to another location in the site with ease.

CreativityThe site will be evaluated for creativity in the areas of uniqueness, content,

approach to the material, and the method of engagement.

Logical ConnectionsThe site must be logical and make sense to specific users. What may be

logical to one user may leave another totally lost. For example, a site developed for teens would

be very different from one for retirees, just as one for travel is very different from one on

finance.

Engaging AppearanceThe site should be attractive, pleasing, interesting, and beneficial. The

time an average user will give a site is a matter of seconds unless it engages the viewer visually

and mentally.

Elements (Variety and Appropriateness)The site should contain enough variety to hold

interest while maintaining an overall consistency that reflects the purpose and desired image of

the site. It should conform to the Biblical values and overall Convention guidelines regarding

appropriateness of subject matter, substance, graphics, etc.

Browser-friendlyThe site should be fully functional on multiple browsers and viewable on as

many computers as possible. Several browsers are in wide use; however, the older the browser

is that can access your site, the less robust the elements are and the more limited the creativity

can be.

Graphic DesignThe site should follow generally accepted Internet standards regarding

presentation. Some of these regard font style, spacing, overlay, and other aspects of the

presentation. There are helpful sites on the Web to learn about these items.

CONTENT

ClearFor the site to be effective, the content must be clear in its presentation, navigation,

functionality, and purpose.

AppropriateThe content of the site should meet the convention guidelines and standards and

be appropriate for its intended purpose. Any Scripture reference listed must be from the King

James Version. All subject matter (photos) must meet the A.C.E. dress and appearance

guidelines.

Accomplishes GoalsThe user should be able to understand and receive benefit from the

purpose of the site as intended by the developer. If this doesnt happen, the user will probably

leave quickly and products will not be sold, information will not be imparted, and ideas will not

be communicated.

Checklist for Website Design:

1. Three (3) Judges Forms (CF32) are required for Regional and International Convention.

2. Creative Composition Affidavit (CF28) attached to entry and properly signed. You will

need three (3) copies of the Creative Composition Affidavit form; attach one copy to

each Judges Form.

HINTS FROM THE JUDGES

Size is not part of the judging criteria! More is not necessarily better. However, there must be

some navigation in the site. It is important that a site distinguish itself through quality and value

to the user as compared to other sites competing for the same audience. The point values in

judging are weighted in favor of the structural organization because that is essential to site

functionality and usefulness. Poor content is changeable, but poor design is the death of a site.
