Posted on 02/19/2021
Regional Science Fair Winners with principalNewton County School System (NCSS) students fared very well at the recent Griffin RESA Regional Science Fair, as eleven students brought home awards from the competition. NCSS students competed, virtually, against fellow students from Butts, Fayette, Henry, Lamar, Pike, Spalding, and Upson counties.

“I am so impressed but definitely not surprised by how successful our students were at the Regional Science Fair,” added Fuhrey. “I know for a fact and have said for years, that Newton County is home to some of the most academically gifted students in the state. Our students continually prove in competitions such as the Regional Science Fair that they can compete with and out-perform the very best students the state of Georgia has to offer. I am so proud of each and every one of our students and wish those moving on to the state and competition the very best of luck. I know they will represent their schools and our school system well!”

The following is a list of all Newton County School System Regional Science Fair winners. All first place winners will move on to compete at the 2021 Georgia Science and Engineering Fair in April.
