has announced the winners of its Macromedia Student Web Site Design Contest and a summer initiative to provide educators and students with free online training when they buy the Macromedia Web Design Studio.
Four first place winners in the Macromedia Student Web Design Contest will receive US$1,000 scholarships and have their site featured in the Macromedia Student Showcase. They are:
Jonathan Valliere, 10th grade, Martini County High School, Florida;
Philip Duong, 12th grade, Milwaukie High School, Milwaukie, Oregon;
Adrienne Rodgers, second year, SFSU Multimedia Studies Program, San Francisco, California; and

Winners were chosen by a panel of experts in Web design and Web content. The sites were judged for: creativity and ingenuity; design and functionality; content; and technical achievement. Winners were selected from entries from both high school and college students.
Meanwhile, educators and students who buy the Web Design Studio can take a free course on
Macromedia University. The free course will include training on the basic features of Macromedia Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks and FreeHand.
