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 early to allow time to create an excellent project.

This website is being updated and will be finalized sometime in early October, at the latest,  following the State’s Planning Meetings.  We do not anticipate many changes.  However, there are some we know about from the State’s March Planning Meeting.

Any changes will be marked in RED.

We will make every effort to keep to the schedule and will move it along when possible by calling students early for judging times.  Participants can help by being ready to present should their project is called early.  Students should report to the entry area to the judging area between 5 and 10 minutes prior to their judge interview time.

Upon arrival to the Technology Fair, please have one person stop by the check-in desk at the main entrance to turn in release forms and check-in.
