Due to the extenuating circumstances around COVID-19, the decision has been made to hold the 2021 competition virtually.
During your preparations, please be mindful of social distancing. The safety of all students is VERY IMPORTANT and it is not advised to video with your partner if you are competing as a team. If you are working with a partner, an alternate option for recording could be to record one partner live with the 2nd partner virtual. Be creative in recording your virtual presentations and stay safe.
February 1 - February 28 - Student Registration (Link will be provided soon).
March 1 - March 7 - Project Submission Window (Link will be provided soon).
March 15 - March 29 - Judging Window
TECHNOLOGY COMPETITION OVERVIEW:
*This is a 100% virtual competition.
*All 3rd -12th grade Fulton County students are invited to enter a student created Technology Project that aligns with one of these CATEGORIES.
*Students may enter only ONE project. Projects may be submitted by an individual or up to two team members. Individuals and teams of two compete against each other.
*Projects are to be designed and created by students. Some adult guidance is allowed, but it must be clear that work entered by students was done by the students. Judges will expect students to demonstrate that the work is their own. This should not be a whole class assigned project.
*Read the category descriptions before you select your project category. No changes will be made after the project has been submitted. After that time, students’ projects will be judged based on the category for which they registered. Changes in category WILL NOT be made for any reason after submission. Projects will be judged by the category under which the project was submitted.
VIRTUAL COMPETITION PROCESS:
Video presentations will be submitted online and there will be a one week judging period, after the student submission window closes. Please read all 2021 Virtual Submission Guidelines.
The programming challenge will be held remotely. However, no video submission will be required for this. Students in this category will receive information specific to the virtual programming competition later this month.
This category is only open to students in 7th-12th Grades.
