Just like last year, there are 3 entry levels in 2008: Primary, Intermediate and Secondary schools. Entries can be from a team of three, a whole class, and on an individual basis at intermediate and secondary school levels.
The entry theme for 2008 is What We Learned. Entrants are requested to design a website on a topic in their school curriculum, with the view to educating other students about this topic. This competition has the dual benefit of making the existing curriculum more fun, while also encouraging the use of the internet as a learning and teaching tool.
