The ThinkQuest Website Competition 2009, sponsored by the Oracle Education Foundation (OEF), is now open to teams of students, ages 9-19, from anywhere in the world. Each team must be coached by a teacher or school employee.
Teams are challenged to develop an educational website on topics of their choosing, including [url=http://www.thinkquest.org/library/search.html?&search_text=conflict+resolution]conflict resolution[/url], of course. Website entries may utilize a variety of technologies and take a variety of creative forms.
Participating students can develop important 21st century skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, self-direction, and technology skills.
Entries are due on April 2, 2009, giving teams up to eight months to create their websites. Professional educators from around the world will judge all entries.
Qualifying entries will be published in the ThinkQuest Library, the world’s largest online repository of student-developed learning projects, visited by millions of web learners each month.
Prizes may include laptop computers, digital cameras, school grants, and a trip to the awards event in San Francisco, depending on placement.
