The Mid-Atlantic Consortium on Accessible Information Technology helps schools make information technology (including web pages) accessible to all students, faculty, and employees so that everyone can access information, share work, communicate, and take advantage of distance learning options. The purpose of this contest is to increase awareness of the importance of web access, and to increase the interest of school districts in improving the accessibility of their web sites. Judges will evaluate sites on the basis of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Priority 1 Checkpoints and Section 508 Web Standards. The home page of each site and three links will be judged. K-12 schools in Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania are eligible to apply.
