San Antonio, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/03/2014 -- Spurs Sports & Entertainment’s non-profit, Silver & Black Give Back, last fall announced the 20 semifinalist projects in their “Team Up Challenge” which encourages young people to get involved in helping to improve the quality of life in our local community. Each team’s school received $2,500 to begin their projects.
Five schools will be selected as the 2013-14 Team Up Challenge champions. Each one will receive $20,000 in funding to help continue its efforts to improve the community. Mayor Julian Castro partnered with Silver & Black Give Back on a public service announcement about the importance of voting and encouraged students to vote online for their favorite Team Up Challenge projects.
To feature all details of the Team Up Challenge program, Silver & Black Give Back chose Digital Media Sapiens to redesign and develop the Team Up Challenge website: http://www.teamupchallenge.com
“We are honored to have built this website,” says Ajay Tejwani, CEO of Digital Marketing Sapiens. “We regard it as one of our masterpieces because it is highly artistic in design yet functional and easy to navigate, which allows the public to see the organizations that are vying for financial support from Silver & Black Give Back and vote for their favorite program.”
Tejwani says, “The challenges in the construction of this website were unique because there were no template pages; that is, each and every page is different so there was a lot of intricate work involved in making each page responsive for desktop, tablet and smart phone screens.”
“I credit my team of graphic designers and programmers as well as the members of Silver & Black Give Back and the Spurs Sports & Entertainment creative team for the success of this project,” Tejwani says. “It just goes to underscore that great things happen when talented and dedicated people come together to achieve a common goal. “
The website was launched on Monday, March 24 and in the first five days over 50,000 people voted for the participating schools they believe are making a huge difference in the community.
