1. SCIway to Sponsor Web Design Contest for South Carolina K12 Students
During the first three months of 2001, SCIway will sponsor a statewide Web design contest that will give South Carolina K12 students a chance to shine ... and to teach the rest of us about South Carolina.
To enter the "Teach South Carolina" contest, student design teams must develop a collection of Web pages about some aspect of South Carolina–a person or event in our history ... a place or community ... a problem we currently face ... or any other South Carolina topic they choose. These pages must be completed and uploaded to SCIway by 5:00 p.m., Saturday, March 31.
Prizes will be awarded in two divisions: grades 9-12 and grades 8 and under. First prize in each division is $500, and second prize is $300. The top four teams will also receive trophies, and their websites will be added to SCIway and featured in the April issue of SCIWAY News.
In addition as many as 16 other student design teams may receive SCIway excellence awards. These will include $100, a plaque, and a place on SCIway.
All South Carolina K12 students are eligible to participate in SCIWAY's Teach South Carolina Contest, regardless of whether they attend a public, private, or home school.
Final rules will be posted on January 1, and additional contest information will be included in the January issue of SCIWAY News.

3. A Good Way to Remember What Really Matters This Holiday Season
The holidays are hectic at best. There are never-ending presents to buy and parties to attend. Trees must be decorated, cards sent, and if you have children, you will undoubtedly have costumes to sew or cookies to bake. In the midst of all these responsibilities, it becomes so easy to forget why we're celebrating in the first place.
This makes December an especially good time of year to visit SCIWAY's collection of South Carolina religious websites (https://www.sciway.net/org/relig.html). Here you will find many, many reasons to sit back, rest for just a moment, and remember what really matters this season. Our state's online churches and temples abound with holiday "e-spirit"–from Christmas carols in streaming audio to festive photographs of holly wreaths hanging on old wood doors.
These sites are also the perfect place to find out the whens-and-wheres of holiday gatherings and services ... and to learn a good bit about a church's personality.
So if the holidays have you feeling overwhelmed, take some time to enjoy what the religious organizations in your community have to offer online. With over 400 sites, you might just find a little something to help you lighten your soul. Not to mention make you smile!
