CCSD Students Advancing to State Social Studies Fair

CCSD Students Advancing to State Social Studies Fair

Six Cherokee County School District students are advancing to the statewide 2024 Georgia Social Studies Fair!

Through the annual CCSD Social Studies Fair program, participating students in grades 5-12 research and complete a project individually or as part of a team.  Projects can focus on anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science or sociology/psychology.  

Students present their projects for judging at the district fair, and top scoring projects advance to regionals and compete for the opportunity to move onto the Georgia Council for the Social Studies state fair.  CCSD students earned half of the Northwest Georgia Region’s spots to advance to state!

Congratulations to CCSD’s regional winners advancing to state:

Estelle Cooper and Alison Haas, Grade 7 of Mill Creek MS, in History for “Ford Changed the World” -- teacher Wendy Malsby

Rachael Crachi and Aubrey Quinn, Grade 5 of Mountain Road ES, in History for “Apollo 13” -- teacher Anna Jurnack

Logan Dructor, Grade 6 of Dean Rusk MS, in History for “What Was the Pig War?” -- teacher Jacob Pendergraft

“Congratulations to our winners on this impressive accomplishment showcasing your excellence in research and writing and dedication to exploring our world and our history,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “As a former social studies teacher, I appreciate how hard you worked to earn this honor.  Thank you to all of our outstanding social studies teachers for your investment in our students and congratulations and thank you to the teacher who provided support as advisors for these winning projects.”
