For High School Student Participants 
This competition is designed to reward students, like you, who use technology for learning and in daily life.

If you participate in your school's team, you will:
  • Enjoy a team activity that involves some challenging tasks during a school day.
  • Represent your high school in an annual state-wide online competition.
  • Have the opportunity to win, with your team, a trophy for your school.
  • Distinguish yourself as one of the participating members of a school technology team. Why is this important? This really looks great on your academic record when you apply to a university or for a job!
  • Get recognition, praise, and... respect. 
  • Hopefully, your work will be recognized as exemplary. If this is the case, your file(s) may be distributed by the organizers of this event to educators throughout Louisiana. Your school team will receive acknowledgment for excellent work.
What Do I Need To Do?
Your school needs to have a Team Coach. Ask your principal who the Team Coach for your school is. Then, contact the Team Coach. The Team Coach can be any adult who works at your high school as teacher, administrator, or staff member. Every high school in Louisiana is eligible to enter a single team composed of up to 15 students.

What Will I Do?
During regular school hours, on the day of the Technology Challenge, your team will meet to compete during the morning. Your team will complete a number of creative tasks. Teamwork is a must. You should be familiar with searching the Internet for reliable information, doing word processing (Word), making presentations (Powerpoint), and maybe knowing how to do some spreadsheet editing (Excel). Working with media is useful. Although you don't have to "know everything", you should be able to contribute in a productive and positive way.

Requirements
There are deadlines for these requirements:
1. Your school's Team Coach selects a team of up to 15 students. 

2. Participating students are excused from classes during the time of the competition.
3. The competition begins when files are accessed from an online account on the day of the competition and ends when the completed files are electronically uploaded  to a designated online account. 
4. Team work is essential. Be prepared to work together.

5. While it's not guaranteed, or required, we do recommend that your school pays for a pizza party to celebrate completing the Technology Challenge!


What Are The Rules?
  • Registered students of the school team may participate.
  • This is a team effort with a timed deadline.  
  • Your team will complete a series of challenging tasks in a relatively short time. 
  • No adults will help you find answers or assist with the completion of the tasks. Only minimal technical assistance is allowed when technical difficulties arise.
  • We do hope that you enjoy the process! You might be doing something like this for the rest of your life!
