Quoin developed an engaging website to support the Lexus Eco Challenge, which enables teachers and students in grade 6 through 12 to participate in community-oriented projects focused on improving our environment.

As part of our ongoing partnership with Scholastic, Quoin built a variety of new websites and interactive applications for teachers, parents, and students. A recent project is the 'Eco-Challenge' website that supports a range of specific educational initiatives spearheaded by Scholastic and their corporate partner Lexus/Toyota. The Lexus Eco Challenge is "a life-changing opportunity for teens across the nation to make a difference in the environmental health of our planet, one community at a time.” Each year, Scholastic awards hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money to students and their schools that participate in this program.

Quoin built the site using Ruby-on-Rails and other open source frameworks. The architecture supports a range of interactive features, including registration, submission of contest-entry documents/media, tracking of awards, and others. Our team worked rapidly to implement the complete site on an aggressive 12-week schedule.
