INFORMATION Technology students from Bridgwater College have competed in a challenge to create a working website for the Wembdon Village Hall and Playing Fields Trust.
The Trust, which had difficulty creating a website itself, contacted the college to work with current Level 2 students.
More than 30 website designs were created and submitted to the project team and student Ieva Zadeikyte’s design was eventually chosen as the winner.
Ieva, aged 17, from Bridgwater: “Even though this was my very first attempt at creating a website I am still very proud of it.
“The cash prize is currently in the bank along with all of the money that I have already saved up for a new computer that I plan to buy over the summer.
“After all, what is an IT student without a good computer?!”
Sarah Cook, programme manager, told the Mercury: “We were all very impressed with the standard of the websites created, especially as the students were only six months into their course.
“It’s very rewarding for them to see their work become reality, as normally they work on dummy sites.
“Ieva’s design covered all of the areas the brief requested.”
The new site will go live shortly at www.wembdonvillagehall.co.uk
