The Adair County School District sent four teams - one from each school - to the Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) state competition Wednesday at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY. All four schools gave impressive presentations, and Adair County Primary Center's project earned a top-10 finish out of more than 578 entries.

"It was an exciting day for our district," says district network engineer-administrator Jason Rector, who joined the teams on the trip. "All four schools were well-represented and I believe we have some of the most innovative and creative thinking students around. Their hard work toward the projects showcased that."





ACPC presented a YouTube video, "12 Easy Ways to Save the Planet" which was written, directed, and produced by students and featured simple conservation ideas. Thus far, the video has been viewed almost 1,700 times and has received comments online from viewers in 41 states and 17 different countries.

"Our kids were excited and we were extremely close to going to nationals in Texas," says ACPC's STLP coordinator Laura Marcum. "I absolutely loved watching our second graders talk to adults and other students about their project. It was so much fun watching our students when they found out they had made it to Level 3, which meant they would get an award."

Marcum believes the video will continue to make an impact on students and adults alike. "I feel like our video will continue to be used," Marcum says. "By having it posted on YouTube it can be accessed when people type in words related to the title in the search box. One teacher told us that she was planning to use our video in her class on Earth Day."

Students participating in the competition Wednesday included, from ACPC: Addie Baker, Gabe Coleman, Sofia Coleman, Jasper Kemp, Alayna Marcum, and Lilly Myers. From ACES: Brody Blair, Abby Claywell, Jack Fishback, Dillon Godsey-England, Rylee Godsey-England, Jordan Grider, Malakai Horton, and Mason Horton. From ACMS: Ian Grant, Hayden Hancock, Coleton Wall, and Chad Wiley. From ACHS: Trevor Cowan, Katherine Curry, Sara Dunbar, Chloe Hixson, Maddie Loy, Tyler Miller, Roberto Ramirez, and Erwin Ruczienski. Coordinators in attendance included Marcum (ACPC), Sarah Dean (ACES), Adam Cox (ACMS), Katie Curry (ACHS), and Jenny Myers (ACHS).
