The BPA (Business Professionals of America) State Conference was held this weekend.
At the Regional Conference, I took 1st for Fundamentals of XHTML and we took 2nd for Web Design Team. At State, I placed 1st in Fundamentals of XHTML, and our website team took 1st place for Web Site Design Team.
The National Conference is being held in New York in May. Six out of Seven people from our Chapter are going. It's going to be awesome.
The most difficult part of the XHTML test was that we had to do an image map. Who uses those nowadays??
So, I had completely forgot the tags for the image map. They had a picture of puppies, and they wanted us to use an image map to make each head a circular link to a different page.
I leaned over and asked a few people at the Awards Ceremony if they got the image map, and nobody answered with a "yes." So... my chances were good that I'd at least place
But I didn't just place, I got First freakin' place. First in my region, first in my state.
There's another interesting story about the Web Design Team - that will come in another post on this thread. Let's just let this part sink in.
