The Mall Project has stood the test of time as platforms changed from Apple II to Macintosh to PC and the software progressed from AppleWorks to Microsoft Office. On the way, it has been awarded the grade 6-8 division of the SPACE GEMS technology contest in 1997, sponsored by a U of I alumnus, Clay Hurst. In addition, The Mall Project received a grant from the ISBE, for emphasizing the "School to Careers" connection, in the spring of 1999. This creative teaching idea has been shared at several conferences including the Role of Technology in Education, the Midwest Technology Conference and the IASB Convention. Just this year, the Mall Project was copyrighted.
