NEIU19 held its 3rd annual PA High School Computer Fair Regional Competition on Thursday April 6 at the Career and Technology Center (CTC) of Lackawanna County. The Pennsylvania High School Computer Fair is an annual event that highlights Pennsylvania high school students’ application skills and computer knowledge. Students are able to unleash their creativity, learn how to convey information more dynamically, and enhance the learning process. Top winners in each category go on to compete at the state level.
5 Students along with advisors John Ord and Diana Hurlburt traveled to the Center to represent Susquehanna Community High School for the first time since the start of the regional competition 3 years ago. The students entered 2 projects in 2 different categories:
Multimedia Presentation: Students - Teri Upright and Casey Gliddon; Project Title - Hurricane Katrina.
Text Based Desktop Publishing: Students - Dan Brinton, Cheasea Henry and Phylicia Decicco; Project Title - High School Newspaper.
Although they did not place (1st, 2nd and 3rd places awarded in each category), all had fun and met some new faces. Casey and Teri already have their project picked out for next year and hopefully more participation from other talented students in the school will be seen.
