Six projects by Cherokee County School District students are advancing to the statewide 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. Regional winners then advance to the Georgia Council for the Social Studies state fair, which is next month in Kennesaw.
