Science Fair Winners Announced

NCSS Announces District Science Fair Winners
Posted on 01/18/2019
Science FairNewton County School System (NCSS) is pleased to announce the winners of the NCSS District Science Fair. All middle and high school students who earned first place awards will now move on to challenge students from Fayette, Henry, Griffin-Spalding, Butts, Pike, Lamar, and Thomaston Upson county schools at Griffin RESA Regional Science & Engineering Fair on February 7, 2019. (A small group of elementary students also participated in the district science fair to gain experience and exposure to the competition; however, those first place winners will not compete in the regional fair.)

“Congratulations to each of our science fair winners,” said Samantha Fuhrey, superintendent of Newton County School System. “I know that a lot of time and effort goes into researching and conducting science experiments for each project; I commend each of the students for taking the time to participate. I was very much impressed by the wide variety of projects on display at the science fair. Our students conducted some extremely high caliber experiments so I know our first place winners will represent Newton County School System well in the regional science fair.”

The following is a list of all Newton County School System Science Fair winners along with their project titles.
