The Statistics Canada Web Page Contest
Winners' Web Pages

Sponsored by Dissemination Division at Statistics Canada, the web page contest encourages Canadian students from grade K and up to display data in creative ways. The web page (participants can submit more than one Web page) should display data visually and illustrate conclusions that can be drawn from the data.

Categories and Prizes

Prizes totaling $100 may be given in each grade. The winning entries will be posted to Statistics Canada's website. Winning entrants and their schools will receive certificates signifying the honour. Honourable mention certificates may also be awarded.

Closing Date

Submissions must be received by March 31.

Permissions

By submitting a web page, students agree that all rights, including copyrights, are assigned to and become the property of Statistics Canada.

Rules

Pages should fill a screen.
Subject matter is chosen by the participant(s) or their classmates from data contained on Statistics Canada's website (http://www.statcan.ca).
Your web page must include a link to the Statistics Canada data source.
Pages must not contain any marks, names or information that reveal the identity of the entrants.
Students may work individually or in teams. For those in K to 3, there are no restrictions on the size of the team. For the other grades, a team may have no more than six members. Teams may be made up of students from different grades, but will be judged at the highest grade level of a team member.
Entries from grade 4 and up must contain more than one graph. Entries from K to 3 students may contain only one graph and may be digital images of hand-drawn graphs.
Pages must be the original design and creation of the entrants themselves and be posted to a functioning website maintained by the school, teacher or student.

It's a good start cowkiller. I'm sure you can do it. The only thing that is a little strange about it is the "w" in "world of smoking" seems to be cut off in IE6 on my machine. Also, I'm not sure I'm entirely fond of the yellow double back hashes dividing the bottom links. I'd make 'em white and a "pipe" vs. the backhashes.

What is there to review?

You may want to enclose tag attributes in double quotes. Usually a good idea. Might have something to do with the 'w', but then again might not.

The site has a positive feel to it but your focal point says Smoking Canadians which makes smoking look positive. Perhaps put something about quitting smoking instead and let that be your positive message.

Looks good, one thing I'd do though, is a mouseover highlight on the buttons in the left side navigation, and the huge gradient looks a little off along the top (the best viewed in 1024x768, and "Smoking Canadians" bits)...

Other than that, nice effort so far! :)
