KAWA Uganda in collaboration with the Uganda Communications Commission and the National Curriculum Development Center (NCDC) is introducing a national annual Website competition for secondary schools with ICT Clubs in Uganda. This will be a Project-Based Learning activity developed by a group of students in each school basing on the 17 Sustainable Development goals (SDGs)
Motivation for Participation
This is an opportunity for ICT Club members and the rest of the students together with their teachers and the whole school to shine by showing out what can come out of that computer lab. UCC has supported over 1000 secondary schools in both urban and rural areas with functional computer laboratories.
For the first time, our students will practically get involved in Web engineering, Web content development with a clear understanding of client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, Web server, and network security configuration, and e-commerce development depending on the topic chosen.
Procedure for Participation

Students are encouraged to use all the resources available on the internet to research, build their technical skills, discover their innovative nature, build interactive websites with feedback facilities from users, and upload their websites on the KAWA server before the deadline.
