In my explorations of charities and statistics, I ran across this site that posted a list of statistics on world hunger.
What made the list unique was that the list was informative, varied and had no obvious citations. OK. I explored the site by going to the home page and discovered that the page was produced in a competition among students of grades 8-12 to produce a type of web quest called a think quest.
The competition is an annual event and entries can still be submitted for the 2008 year. The next few paragraphs are copied and pasted from the ThinkQuest site.
- Students, ages 9-19, form a team and recruit a teacher to act as coach. Once the coach enrolls the team, students work together to create an innovative website on any topic within a broad range of educational categories. Diverse teams and globally relevant themes are encouraged.
