Clatsop County students have a chance to win prizes while learning about Web development in a contest to build an educational Web page, sponsored by Tech Connects.

The contest is open to all students in grades 6 through 12. Teams of three students may register online, choose their own education-related subjects and build a Web site. Prizes for the best designs are donated by Microsoft and local businesses.

Previous Web experience is not necessary. Astoria's afterschool Connections program will offer workshops to help teams build their sites, with the first two scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 7 and 9 at the Astoria High School computer lab. Times and details for subsequent workshops will be listed on the contest's Web site.

Registration closes April 4. For details and to register, visit
