The FSAPS Social Studies Department would like to congratulate several students for their strong showing at the West Metro Regional Social Studies Fair on Saturday, March 5th. Students from neighboring counties converged on Lake Ridge Elementary School in Clayton County to compete in the fair. FSAPS sent 4 projects representing various social science disciplines and were well-rewarded for their hard work.
First place ribbons were won by 7th grader Isabella Sims for her project, “All The Pretty Horses: The Truth About America’s Wild Horses”, as well as by 8th graders Ananya Pottabhathini and Prajwal Vedula with their project “How Has the Syrian Refugee Crisis Impacted Europe’s Economy?”
Two other entrants, 7th grader James Stevens and 8th grader Sophie Richardson, both received second place ribbons for their projects “How Does Being Bullied As an Adolescent Affect People As Adults?” and “What is the Impact of the Film and Television Industry on Georgia’s Economy?”, respectfully.
The first place winners will continue on to represent FSAPS and the region in the state Social Studies Fair at Clayton State University on Saturday, April 16th.
Thank you to all of the students and their teachers for making this year’s FSAPS Social Studies Fair a success. A lot of hard work went into these projects, and although only a few could progress to this level, we felt there were many deserving of the honor. We are very proud of all of our students that participated in the fair this year and are excited by this success at the regional level.
