Stacey Fornstrom’s Computer Magnet Pathways class produces five High School Project of the Year winners for 2010.
On Wednesday March 10, 13 seniors in the Thomas Jefferson Computer Magnet program participated in the “High School Project of the Year” competition, sponsored by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Five of the students won “High School Project of the Year” designations. For the competition, students design, document, and create their own projects following the five process groups and nine knowledge areas used by PMI project managers. This year’s winners and their projects are:
Daniel Eaton and Daniel Smith – 3D models and a website for the TJ 3D Design club.
Andrea Shacklock and Chelsea Skubal – Website design and graphic design, including posters and t-shirts.
Andrew Scherer – promotional materials for the TJ JROTC program, including flyers, posters, video, and Powerpoint.
“We were very honored to win Project of the Year,” said Chelsea Skubal. “Designing a You Are Here map of the school and a Girls’ Swimming website and tee-shirts allowed us to give back to TJ while learning project management that we can use throughout college and future careers.”
Winners are now eligible to apply for scholarships from PMI. This is the fifth year in a row that TJ has had winners in the competition.
“This competition and ongoing educational relationship with PMI is a great way for the Computer Magnet to make those critical connections with industry that gives our students a clear advantage in creating career pathways,” said Fornstrom.
