Forty-six CCSD students won first place in their respective categories at the region level of the Georgia Educational Technology Fair, earning a spot at the state competition in March.
More than 300 students put their tech skills to the test in the region competition held January 21 at River Ridge HS. The Georgia Educational Technology Fair includes 16 categories of competition for students in grades 3-12, with five bands of grade levels within each category (grades 3-4, 5-6, etc.). Dr. Brian V. Hightower, Superintendent of Schools, and Bobby Blount, Assistant Superintendent of Technology, shared their congratulations with the students and assisted in the awards presentations of medals and ribbons. Northside Hospital-Cherokee sponsored the event.
The state fair will be held March 11 in Macon at Middle Georgia State University.
