Calling young Webmasters!

Parents and teachers, December 6 is the deadline this year for Web developers 18 and under to compete for a place at the prestigious,international Cable & Wireless Childnet Academy in Jamaica next spring. To qualify, they must be a key person in the development of a site that benefits other young people or have a great idea for the "New to the Net" category which they'd like to develop further.

Prizes: A place at the Cable & Wireless Childnet Academy, 3/26-4/1; a grant from the project development fund totaling $50,0000+; an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Jamaica (must be accompanied by an adult); and follow-up Web support from Childnet and the Academy's mentors and trainers. One of the biggest rewards, I feel, is the chance to work shoulder-to-shoulder with peers from all over the world for a whole week. Winners usually represent nearly every continent.
