At the recent graduation exercises of Esprit de Corps Center for Learning (EDC), the winners of the highly anticipated website design competition were announced to thunderous applause. The competition, which drew participants from both middle and high school grade levels, showcased the incredible talents of youth in the field of technology and innovation. Taking the coveted first place was Natalie Rodriguez, whose website impressed judges with its seamless functionality and creative design. Following closely behind were Debrante George, awarded second place, and Joseph Rodriguez, securing third place. Each student had just 24 hours to develop a website from scratch, demonstrating their prowess in coding, design, and content creation. The panel of esteemed judges, including Marvin Wells, MD, Shannon Reid, MSIT, and Rum Robinson, CEO of Flantastic Enterprises, evaluated entries on various criteria, from functionality to creativity. The winners were presented with prizes ranging from $300 to $100, with consolation prizes also awarded to other noteworthy entries.

The competition not only showcased the incredible talent of the EDC students but also highlighted the importance of STEM education, particularly for students of color. “STEM education plays a crucial role in preparing our youth for success in a rapidly evolving, technologically driven world. We are thrilled to support initiatives like EDC’s website design competition,” said Pastor Michael Bolden, one of the Diamond Sponsors. “It’s essential to invest in STEM education to empower our youth and prepare them for the future.”

EDC is a non-chartered, private school with a mission to provide a safe and nurturing atmosphere of Christian moral excellence where students are trained to lead godly lives in a multicultural and technologically sophisticated society.
