Bulloch students shine at Regional Technology Fair
Placeholder Image

    Bulloch County Schools hosted its Third Annual Regional Student Technology Fair Saturday, Jan. 26, at Julia P. Bryant Elementary School. This year’s event was sponsored by Dabbs, Hickman, Hill & Cannon LLC of Statesboro and was open to third- through 12th-grade students from area public, private and home schools. Students, competing either individually or in two-person teams, submitted 197 projects in 12 of the 13 eligible categories.
    All first-place winners will advance to the 13th Annual Georgia Educational Technology Fair at Macon State College March 9. They will join more than 500 first-place winners from among 13 technology categories held at the state’s 15 other regional fairs.
    More than 130 community volunteers from Georgia Southern University, Ogeechee Technical College, Bulloch County Schools and area businesses lent their expertise to judging and facilitating the event. Ryan’s of Statesboro provided a complimentary lunch for the volunteers, who worked for five hours reviewing entries and interviewing students leading up to the awards ceremony at 1:30 p.m.
    More than 300 family members and supporters filled the Julia P. cafeteria to honor student participants and winners. The first- through third-place winners in each category and age division are listed below.
