The 2nd annual DesignSmart Challenge is happening this weekend at Niagara College!

The CMSIntelligence team is thrilled to be joining Niagara College for the 2nd annual DesignSmart Challenge, happening Saturday, November 21.

Students building Smarter Websites

The DesignSmart Challenge is an opportunity for students to apply the skills they’re learning at Niagara College by building a website in one day, using the CMSIntelligence Platform.

The event is happening on Saturday, November 21 during Niagara College’s open house.

Six Teams, One Winner, $250 Prize Money

This year, we have 16 students spread across six teams. Each team will consist of students from Niagara College’s New Media Web Design and Computer Programming courses.

At the beginning of the competition, the teams will be presented with a project brief - similar to what they will encounter after they graduate. They will take that brief and apply their skills in website design to create and build a website on the CMSIntelligence Platform.

Each team will be judged on 4 key components:

  • Design
  • Assembly
  • Functionality
  • Integration

The team that achieves the highest score walks away with the prize money.
