Four Newton County School System (NCSS) middle and high school students brought home awards from the recent Georgia Science and Engineering Fair (GSEF)! In order to participate in the State Science Fair, students must first have won at both their local school system science fair and their regional science fair.

At GSEF, the exhibitors have the opportunity to share their research with some of the top scientists in Georgia and compete for awards and scholarships.

“Congratulations to each of our outstanding scientists,” said NCSS Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey. “They have represented their schools and our school system extremely well. They have won first place in both our school system and the regional science fair and have now brought home awards from the state competition. This is an exceptional accomplishment and I commend each of them for a job well done.”

Fuhrey added, “I take great pride in the fact that Newton County School System students continue to excel not only in local and regional competitions but also at the state level.”

Below is a complete listing of NCSS students and their awards:
