On March 1st, the West Metro Regional Social Studies Fair was held at Mundy’s Mill High School and consisted of 13 participating school districts.

APS submitted thirteen student projects for the West Regional Social Studies Fair, and eight of the thirteen projects were selected to represent the West Metro Region at the State Social Studies Fair on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at Clayton State University.

Furthermore, eight of the sixteen projects representing the region at the State Social Studies Fair were created by Atlanta Public School students.

“Students displayed social science research at its finest based on success at the West Metro Regional Fair for Atlanta Public Schools,” said Felisa Ford, social studies coordinator at APS.
