The Seevak Website Competition is open to BLS students, who work in teams of three to produce websites devoted to selected topic. All students are eligible to participate; you do not need to have taken Facing History in order to participate. These projects will be multimedia computer projects that combine print, images, and possibly video and audio.
The topic for the 2011 Seevak Facing History Prize competition is a person or group in the twentieth century that has taken a courageous stand and, as a result, has made an important difference to society, either on a local, national, or international scale. The topic encourages the investigation of an individual or group that contributed in some special way to building or improving tolerance, human rights, justice for individuals and the citizenry and/or democratic institutions. The person selected could be someone well known or could be someone local, perhaps less well known, but who has contributed something meaningful and important to the betterment of society.
