Contemporary Affairs Winning Website

Mr. Kirkholm's Contemporary Affairs class just completed their unit on endangered animals. During this class the students were paired up and had to come up with a webpage for a Zoo that centered around 16 endangered animals. The class ended up with 8 groups working on this project. The students had 4 parts to this webpage ranging from an information page for each endangered animal, a mission statement, to how their Zoo functioned. 

Once the webpages were graded the Top 3 were sent out and judged by an experienced web designer. The 3 groups were Mia Wallace & Reggie Haynie, Morgan Cook & Sophia Adkins, and Taylor Henderson & Emma Olson. The judging was based on a 4-point rubric with 6 different categories. 

The winners of this competition were Emma Olson and Taylor Henderson with 23 out of 24!! The winning website is included with this article (see the link below) plus a picture of the girls with the plaque and their certificates. 


Congrats to these 2 girls for a great job and all the groups of the Contemporary Affairs Class!!
