Abstract

This paper describes the challenges of designing a series of online Digital Storytelling Contests (DISTCO) and the experience of building a website for the project. These contests are open to all K-12 students and teachers in San Antonio, Texas and surrounding areas. The project is designed so that students and teachers from different schools may enter digital stories to the contest. The competition will be held solely online, and digital stories are required to be submitted using the official contest website (http://www.distco.org). Based on the experiences of the first in a series of Digital Storytelling Contests, DISTCO 2008, the design of the DISTCO 2009 contest has been developed and improved.
