Andrew students build websites

Andrew High School teacher Cathy Wojcik has found a way to give students a real-world opportunity to use their web design class skills. For the class final, she searches the community for a small business or non-profit without a website and asks the owner if they'd be interested in letting students design one for them. Different groups of students are placed into teams to create designs. From there, the owner chooses a winner.

Scholarship sponsors lean towards students with career goals in mind.
