Web Design Contest

Found this announcement (see end of article) in the NY Times for a design contest with a rather interesting payoff:

An [Iraqi] insurgent group, the Victorious Army Group, has extended a deadline for a Web design contest, according to an Internet posting. The group has set a Jan. 15 deadline for submissions of a design "worthy of the group's reputation and the reputation of the jihad and the mujahedeen," according to a translation provided by the SITE Institute, which monitors jihadist messages.

The winner is promised "God's blessings" and the opportunity to fire three long-range rockets at an American military base.

Get those entries in kids!

Hey Is;

Very entertaining. I've been discussing it in my Social Studies classes. Thanks.
