    This alt copy story had a lot of great information including the times and dates the event was scheduled to take place. It was interesting to read that there was going to be over 50 mite teams attending the event and over 5,000 fans. It was also neat and interesting to hear that there would be a shuttle bus to go downtown Stillwater and explore. The graphics in the story were a really cool piece that flowed very nice with the article. Overall this alt copy story was very well done.

    This alternative copy had a good idea but I don’t think it was executed as well as it could have. There was a lot of white space that could have been used to add some more detail and information.

    I think that the facts that over 5,000 fans will be at the event and over 50 teams.

    I think that there was a little too much white space on the alt copy, some of this could have been used towards one more image or a couple more facts about the event.

    Ilike the ice on the top of the graphic. This alternative copy is a good balance of visual and informative. The picture and text flowed well throughout the graphic.
