Over 50 students from all Floyd County Schools recently showcased their projects at the College and Career Academy for the 2023 Floyd County Schools Technology Competition. The students presented a wide range of projects, including 3D Modeling, Animation, Audio Production, Device Modification, Game Design, Graphic Design, Internet Applications, Robotics, and Video Production.

The competition provided a platform for the students to demonstrate their creativity and technical skills. They received valuable feedback from a panel of judges to improve their projects. Winners were selected from each category to advance to the Regional Technology Competition at Georgia Highlands College on January 26, 2024, where they will compete with students from other school districts.

The event would not have been possible without the dedication of the judges and volunteers who supported the students. Special thanks to Angela Shelly, Bucky Bush, Matt DeBord, Amanda Buckenham, Aleksander Segal, Celena Arrington, Janie Shiflett, Kevin Van Der Horn, Kim Baker, Dr. Nancy Singh, Jamey Goss, Jenae Chubb, and Dr. John Rhodarmer. Another special thanks go to the parents and supporters of students who were able to get students to the Technology Competition and support them in the creation of their projects. The work they do surely pays dividends.
