Jul. 23–AMSTERDAM — Genium Group Inc. recently announced the winners of its annual Scores- Up.com Web site of the year challenge.
Business classes at high schools throughout the state used Genium’s curriculum package during the 2007-08 school year to teach students fundamental concepts of Internet commerce.
These ScoresUp.com awards were presented to local schools:
Most entrepreneurial site: Galway High School, instructor Mark Swain.
Most professional site: Niskayuna High School, instructor Janice Lindsay.
Most well written site: Scotia-Glenville High School, instructor Janet Cetnar.
Best maintained site: Coxsackie-Athens High School, instructor Pete Siciliano.
Most creative site: Catholic Central High School, Troy, instructor Debbie Doling.

Gold star achievement (schools named as finalists in at least two of the above award categories): Columbia-Greene Ed Center, Hudson, instructor Mary Andrus, and Schenectady High School, instructor Chris Pallozzi.
Each participating class developed an e-business plan that required the students to build and manage a live Web site with the objectives of attracting as many visitors and generating as much revenue as possible.
Students managed the classroom-based companies, designing, developing and operating their site. Most schools also published an online e-magazine focusing on student achievement.
