“We're very proud of our students and how they performed at this competition,” said Michael Arguin, a Media Technology teacher from GNB Voc-Tech.

Overall, nearly 70 students from area high schools competed within the contest, including students from Old Colony Regional Vocational High School in Rochester, Tri-County Regional Vocational High School in Franklin, and Upper Cape Regional Vocational High School in Bourne.

Teams from Tri-County and Old Colony rounded out the winners placing second and fifth respectively.

A total of 21 students from GNB Voc-Tech competed in the annual BCC Computer Information Systems High School Web site contest held on June 4.

The contest was designed to test the students' knowledge of web development and also the ability to hand-code HTML, XHTML and CSS.

Students were allowed to work in teams of two. They were given two hours to recreate examples of web pages that were provided. One student was allowed to work on each page, while the other student conducted research to complete the problem.
