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 homeschools in Carroll County, Carrollton City, Coweta County, Harris County, Heard County, Meriwether County, and Troup County.
Students in surrounding counties outside the West Georgia Region and without a region are welcome to participate in our competition. 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.
ALL UPDATES have been made and any changes appear in RED.
IMPORTANT UPDATES FROM THE STATE
- Students may submit only one project plus may participate in the Tech Literacy Challenge AND the Technology Programming Challenge. This is a change from previous years when a student could submit TWO projects plus the TLC and the TPC.” This is a requirement of the state technology fair (GaETF). However, to prevent overlaps in the schedule, we require notification to the director via email for a student to participate in the Technology Programming Challenge and any other project.
- The Game Design category was renamed “Digital Game Design”. Rubrics, etc. remain the same.
- The Non-Multimedia category was renamed “Production Design” Rubrics, etc. remain the same.
IMPORTANT REGISTRATION DEADLINE:
The Registration deadline is January 4th. The West Georgia Technology Fair has little control over the date the Tech Fair is scheduled. The date we were given is the only date available for our event. A full 2 weeks is required to prepare the judge materials and other work that is required.
You may still work on the project until the date of the tech fair.
|9:00||Judge interviews begin|
|12:00||Judging interviews complete|
|12:30||Award Ceremony Begins|
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.
Many thanks to our sponsors:
