SAVE THE DATES: 2017 - 2018 HallCo Regional Tech Fair: Jan. 23 (HS) and 24 (ELEM / MIDDLE) Our registration link is now live. This link and sign up is connected to state registration, so only ONE person per school accesses. Input your winners by Dec 13, 2017.
Through statewide technology competitions like our Hall County Regional Technology Competition, we challenge our students to become leaders in a digital age.
First, we have a name change. We are now the Georgia Student Technology Competition. We did this to dispel the idea with parents and some students that we are a “fair” with static displays to view. We are a competition with short judge times and not open for viewing.
Students (3rd – 12th grade) can only participate in a maximum of 1 project, excluding the Technology Literacy Challenge and the Programming Challenge.
Students unable to present their projects, even due to illness, may NOT use "proxies." Only students that are part of the original, registered team may represent a project at the Competition. Students moving on to Region and State SHOULD MAKE SURE THEY ARE AVAILABLE for REGION & STATE Competitions!
Projects are to be designed and created by students. Some adult guidance is allowed, but it must be clear that all work entered by student(s) was done by the student(s).
All school level competitions should be completed, with your winners entered, on the state site by Dec 13, 2017
For Region: 1 entry per school per category per age division
$10 per person per entry.
Only the coordinatorat each school transfers the information from the student form onto the regional/state linkby December 13 noon.
For Region: 1 entry per school per category per division (which is why most schools elect to have a mini school judging for categories with multiple entries AND to help the students improve before region competition).
At Regionals, we award first to third place winners, but only the first place winner continues to represent Hall County in the State competition (March 10, 2018)
New from last year:
We will again video tape judges talking about each winning project and why the project was chosen as the winner. We hope that this addition helps students improve! Check last year winners out for some helpful hints!
We encourage schools to make/bring banners to hang up for your team members! Plus, this will help us find your school!
Thank you to all of our volunteers, judges, and participants! The 2016 - 2017 fair was a tremendous success due to YOUR gift of time and expertise!
Region winners may be viewed on the Regional Results tab.
