Each school will need to submit the top 3 students in each category to our office by close of business on the deadline date. For homeschoolers, all students will need to be submitted to our office the week prior to the deadline, so we can have a panel to select the top 3 of each category to be selected as the school winners.

The 6th grade Slideshow, 7th and 8th grade Speeches, and 9th grade Computer Poster contest night of the school winners will be held at the Edwin H. McGee Natural Resource Center (928 Fairplains Rd, N. Wilkesboro, NC 28659), 6:30pm on Feb. 12, 2019.
