Calling all clubs, students and advisors!!!
It is that time of the year again to think about competing in the University Website Display Contest. Last year we had some amazing websites designed by students that showcased their studying of plants, service to rangeland, and fun activities.
How does this contest work? Student clubs/chapters will make a website that has good web design, shows how the next Annual Meeting’s theme is incorporated into the posts, has a page that is current with club/chapter leadership including advisors and coaches, and has frequent postings.
If you want to know how points are distributed, please see the University Website Display Contest page where the new contest description and judging criteria are posted. We hope this change will improve contest participation as well as participation in symposia, workshops and sessions at the Annual Meeting.
Website contest submissions are due between December 1st and December 20th to Rory O’Connor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please contact either Rory O’Connor (email@example.com) or Kim Gibbs (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions.
There’s a change coming your way! The Student Activities Committee is replacing the Student Chapter Display contest with the NEW University Website Display Contest!
Why the switch?
Well it comes down to 4 reasons: 1) by eliminating the roving chapter displays we are no longer excluding smaller colleges and universities that can’t afford shipping or traveling with their display; 2) it is time to update everyone to the 21st Century. Today’s students need to know how to use social media, and how to construct informative posts; 3) gives students and professionals an opportunity to attend more of the Annual Meeting; and 4) showcases Undergraduate and Graduate students success and activities.
How will this contest work?
Student clubs/chapters will create a website that incorporates good web design, demonstrates how the next Annual Meeting’s theme is incorporated into its posts, includes a page that is current and up to date with club/chapter leadership ( advisors and coaches), and has frequent postings.
To see full details, including how points are distributed, please see the University Website Display Contest page (http://rangelands.org/students/university-website-display-contest/) for the new contest description and judging criteria.
We hope this change will improve contest participation as well as Student participation in symposia, workshops and sessions at the Annual Meeting.
Please note that Student clubs and chapters are still invited to participate in the Trade Show, but there will be no judging of your booth.
