Lakota East wins praise for Web design

        LIBERTY TOWNSHIP — The Lakota East High School Thunderhawks have found a new place to soar: cyberspace.

        This week the school's 15-member Web Page class is featured as Education World's Cool School of the Week for its Web design. It is only the fifth school in Ohio and the first in Greater Cincinnati to be so designated in the program's 3-year existence. Education World is a school-oriented Web site.

        “What we really focus on is how involved the students are. We like to see students being a big part in designing and creating the Web site,” said Lauren Mitchell, public relations and marketing coordinator for Education World.

        Go to the student designed site at and take a virtual tour of the school.

        Click on the art gallery and view student artwork, digitalized images or links to elementary school pages.

        “One issue resolved the first year of the Web site was the decision to refrain from using clip art and nonoriginal graphics as much as possible on our site,” said teacher Gary Stewart. “The students find it exciting to have the opportunity to display their creative talents online to the community and the entire world.”

        For their work, students will receive T-shirts, mouse pads, certificates and a school plaque.
