BCMS Hosts Technology Fair

"Old Car" by Ashley Mudd

The Butler County Middle School Technology Fair was held Thursday, December 15, at the school.  The event is part of the school's Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP), which is coordinated by BCMS teacher Sherlyn Bratcher.  Other co-sponors of the program are teachers Latisha Cardwell, Pam Fazel, Carissa Poston, Leslie Shultz, and Miriam Taylor. 
With dozens of students participating across multiple categories, the technology fair was a huge success, according to Bratcher.  The different entries were displayed throughout the school with judging taking place from 12:30 to 2:30.  Parents and the community were able to view the entries between 3 and 4 p.m.  Award winners (top two in each category) were announced and certificates given at 4:15. 
Below is a list of each category and its top two winners:
