Adobe Kicks Off School Innovation Awards


Adobe this week kicked off its 2008 School Innovation Awards program, a competition in which high school students in accredited private and public schools can submit creative projects to win prizes, including Adobe software, cash, or a Levono laptop.

For the School Innovation Awards program, students submit projects in one of three categories: Web design and development, film and video, and graphic and print design. The projects will focus on the theme for this year's competition: "My Community--My Planet--My 21st Century."

Winners will be chosen from each category, and a grand prize winner will be selected from among them for the best overall project. Winners "should showcase the most creative and innovative use of technology using Adobe products."

The competition is open to high schools students aged 14 to 19 and in grades 9 through 12 in the United States and Canada (except Quebec).

The 2008 School Innovation Awards program is open now through May 12. Winners will be announced at the NECC show in San Antonio, TX in June. (One of the prizes is a trip to NECC.) More information, including rules, entry information, and links to free software can be found here.
