Welcome

Technology Fair Logo

The West Georgia Technology Fair is an annual technology competition for students in the West Georgia Region of the state of Georgia. The West Georgia region includes students who attend public schools, private schools, and home-schools in Carroll County, Carrollton City, Coweta County, Harris County, Heard County, Meriwether County, and Troup County.

Students in counties outside the West Georgia Region are welcome to participate in our fair.  To participate, you must get the approval of the director.  A decision will be based on several criteria including space available.

Students who would like to participate in the Technology Fair are encouraged to begin working on their projects now to allow time to create an excellent project.

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SOON.  The registration deadline is January 2, 2015.  We will not be able to extend the deadline any later than set deadline due to the already short turn around time for scheduling, printing, and other organizing details.  We will be unable to accept any late registration either.  You may find it best to set your school’s deadline for entries to the last day before the Christmas Break.

NOTE THAT SOME SCHOOL SYSTEM FIREWALLS WILL PREVENT THE REGISTRATION LINK FROM WORKING.  YOU MAY EITHER HAVE TO COMPLETE THE REGISTRATIONS OFF THE SCHOOL NETWORK OR ASK YOUR IT DEPARTMENT TO WHITE LIST THE REGISTRATION SITE.  

Please do not create duplicate registrations.  If you discover a mistake after you submit your registration please contact the regional director by email (richard.free@heard.k12.ga.us) or by FAX (706-675-3687) with any corrections.  Also, please do not use the BACK button to start a new registration.  A link is provided at the end of each registration to start a new form.  (Use of the back button causes the form to be rejected and will cancel the registration.)

The event is scheduled for Friday, January 9, 2015 at The Coweta Centre for Performing and Visual Arts in Newnan, Georgia.


INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY

Should there be inclement weather on the scheduled day of the West Georgia Technology Fair please check the Atlanta televisions stations for school closings. In the event the Coweta County Schools are closed, we will reschedule for a later date.  The date and location, should we have to relocate, will be announced on this website and will be emailed to all registered advisers as soon as possible.
