After a fantastic showing at the Georgia Council for the Social Studies Regional Fair, where they earned first place honors, the duo proceeded to take the State Competition by storm, walking away with both the Best in Class II Economics Award and the New Encyclopedia Award for their project, “The Effects of Socioeconomics and Academic Performance in Georgia.”

“I can’t even begin to describe how proud I am of these two students,” said Newton County School System Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey. “They competed with the best and brightest students from around the state in not one but two major competitions and each time they brought home the top awards. What an accomplishment! Lauren and Chelsea most definitely represented Liberty Middle School and the Newton County School System extremely well!”

The Georgia Social Studies Fairs lead students, through competition, to learn, practice, and perfect research processes that can be used now and in the future to make informed decisions that impact both today and posterity. Local, regional, and state social studies fairs annually present exhibitions of student work from grades 5-12. Each project is designed to show research and conclusions about the study of people and their relationships to their physical and social environment.
