Blossomwood Students Compete at ACTE Fair

On Friday, March 1, a group of Blossomwood students participated in the ACTE Region One Tech Fair at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  This competition is open to public, private, and home school students in grades three through twelve.  The goal of the ACTE fair is to provide students with a means of preparing for the digital challenges of tomorrow. Students can compete in fifteen different categories including animation, digital art, digital game design, multimedia applications, robotics, video production, and website design.

Several Blossomwood students placed in the competition.  Rowe Bennett, Elizabeth Tatum, and Kloie Bridges placed first in website design with coding.  Olivia Young and Maggie Jones placed second in website design with coding.  Katherine Heard, Sarah Bryant Heard, Emily Kate Butler, and Addie Haynie placed first in website design with drag and drop.  Yasmin Tyes, Atlantis Shepard, and Reggahnae Paige placed third in website design with drag and drop.  Ava Allen, Benton Craig, and Sarah Medders Raleigh placed second in multimedia applications.

We'd like to congratulate all the participants for their hard work and for representing our school community so well.  We'd also like to recognize Mrs. Leslie Scalf, one of our exceptional gifted education teachers, for instructing and guiding our students throughout the process.
