 IOI Online VotingOnline voting for 'The IOI- Kids 2008 Competitions' is now open on the IOI-Kids website.

These competitions were organised on topics related to the sea for children and youngsters in two separate age groups: (Age 5-10) and (Age 11-16). The competitions are intended to attract further attention by the younger generations to the IOI-KIDS website, and to provide an avenue for young authors to share their original works and projects with other kids in Malta and worldwide through the publishing on the IOI-KIDS dedicated pages. The competitions consisted of: 'The IOI-Kids Young Journalist Award' with works consisting of news or articles; and 'The IOI-Kids Best 2008 Project' with works consisting of instructive projects presented in different forms, write ups in the form of lessons, essays, poems, stories, powerpoint presentations, web pages, videos etc.

The competitions closed at the end of September and the response was excellent, with around 300 participants. The contributions were short-listed by an expert Selection Panel. The works are now online for direct voting by the children and general public. Visitors to the website have until the 7th of December 2008 to vote for their favourite works. A total of four works may be voted, one from each category. Prizes will be awarded to the best contribution from each category together with a number of token gifts to other participants. The local awards will be presented to the winners in December and selected works will be eventually placed as a permanent item on the IOI-Kids website.

The competitions were organised by the IOI-Malta Operational Centre of the University of Malta, which undertakes research and studies related to the sea, promotes education, training and public awareness as well as provides services in physical oceanography. IOI-MOC has created the IOI-Kids website that seeks to present knowledge on the marine environment in an appealing form to children and teenagers, through the use of interactive games, fora, surveys and informative featured articles. IOI-Kids is still in its infancy but is envisaged to grow over the coming months. Have a look at some informative articles and nice educational games that are already online.
