Web Design Contest - Team Formation

Formation of teams by GVC Project Manager
Using the information provided in the application process the GVC Contest Project Manager will assign schools to teams based on the following guidelines:
- The three schools in a team will be from two or three different countries; preferably from three different continents or regions.
- If the distribution of applicant schools allows, all three schools will be from the same age group (Primary - grades 1-7 or Secondary - grades 8-12). If the numbers of applicants requires deviating from this goal, the resulting mixed team will compete in the higher Secondary age category.
- An effort will be made to see that each team have an experienced GVC participant; if that is not possible, at least one or more participant with collaborative experience.
- Teachers who have joined the Contest Wiki will have the choice of one partner. This choice will be made within the above criteria. Requests will be met as much as possible, keeping in mind the other criteria above.
Teams will be announced around September 15-20. It is suggested that during the time before that, all schools prepare introductory pages introducing the students. They do not need to know who their partners will be to talk about themselves!
