The Cherokee County School District’s 2013 Social Studies Fair attracted 115 projects, with 32 selected to advance to the Northwest Regional Social Studies Fair.
The regional fair sponsored by the Georgia Council for the Social Studies will be on Feb. 8 at Kennesaw State University.
Jackie Miller, CCSD supervisor for professional/staff development, said this year’s projects had a wide range of subjects.
“This year’s quality projects were a reflection of the exciting student exploration of social studies in the areas of sociology/psychology, history, anthropology, economics, geography and political science,” Miller said. “Students presented projects, shared their research and findings and were interviewed by judges. They are to be commended for their excellent work.”
The 115 projects at the District fair on Nov. 19 represented work by 163 students.
