All students winning first place awards will represent Newton County School System at the Georgia Science and Engineering Fair at the University of Georgia, March 31-April 2, 2016.
In addition to their placement awards, several students also brought home additional awards of recognition from the Regional Science Fair. Alcovy High School junior, Luke Campbell, blew away the rest of the high school competition by walking out with not only a first place award but also several of the most prestigious awards available, including the Intel Science Talent Search Award; the Office of Naval Research Award; and the United States Air Force Award. In addition, he is the first Newton County School System student to ever earn the all-expenses paid trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair up for grabs each year at the Regional Science Fair.
