So i was looking around good ol Google and Youtube but i couldn't find a good tutorial. My teacher said the school is paying for it and i will be using a mac. so what im looking for is.

How do i build a website:
-Background

Ack, a Mac. My cousin had Computer Science [or was it Comptech...] and he had to build a website.

When he went to my house, he was using Adobe Dreamweaver to build it. I know that you need some type of C++ compiler to create the site. I will try to ask him how he built it again. Then I can pass it onto you.

You must feel awesome that you can nominated for that ;D.
Is it a Elementary School or Secondary School?

Why the hell would they nominate you to do it if you don't even know how? Anyways, with the time you have I would just get a free template and base it off that then you can spend the rest of the time goofing off!

C++ != Html

All you need is a text editor and knowledge of Html to create a simple website. Html is by far the easiest language to learn.

Aww, that sucks! Good luck with whatever you choose to do, and to everyone saying that he needs to learn HTML I don't think he could learn it in time though so again I suggest you use a free website template. Google it you should get tons of 'em. Oh, and since it's a school I don't really think they want something super nice cause I doubt they could come up with something. Lol that's why they are relying on the students.

Takes like an hour or two to learn.
Takes like a day or two (depending on how much you practice) to master.

Now if you want to get into CSS and Javascript or any other scripting language, that's a different story.

I'll start from the top, it'll be pretty, actually very easy to make a simple website, but it'll be very pricy. For my method you need Adobe Dreamweaver, and a Free Website Template. For a varied selection visit This site, Or this site. After downloading a template open it up in Adobe Dreamweaver and change all the text, with Dreamweaver you just need to click the text and it'll set the font for you and you'll be able to change it, not much coding skill needed. After everything is changed you need to set up links and pictures, if you use a template like This onethe links are set up nicely at the top so you can just change the text up there. I've got no idea how you'll redirect it to another site so your on your own from here. For your background this is what you'll need to do, with the template still open go to Modify --> Page Properties, Type the location of the image in the Background Image box, or click on the Browse button to locate and select the image. Click OK.
After your done your website, or when you plan on closing the website, save then File --> Preview in Browser to see how it looks. Hope I helped.

Gambia, The
maybe your school has iWeb on this mac, so it should be a easy clickaround job
if not do what the other ones told ya, html will help you a lot and you will also be able to do your work at home since html isn't bound to any special editor
