The South Christian Elementary School Student Technology Leadership Program will be heading to Texas later this year after winning the state competition in Lexington this week.
A news release from the Christian County Public School System says the students will compete in the national competition in San Antonio this summer after taking first place with their “Walk ‘n’ Roll” project, which was directly linked to the walk event held Saturday in Oak Grove to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and RETT Syndrome.
Students used technology to make flyers, film interviews with parents, and used Microsoft Powerpoint to quiz classmates and walk attendees on the facts that were shared along the walking trail.
The Christian County High School Help Desk also won their division at the competitions in Lexington. Those students were interviewed by a panel of judges and answered questions about how technology is used in their building.
The CCHS Help Desk students help set up printers, create posters for events and with other tasks involving technology.
