The Showcase Excellence in Technology Conference is a student-centered technology conference.

The teams represent schools from the following: Berrien Co., Brooks Co., Lowndes Co., Ware Co., Colquitt Co., and Valdosta City.

The public will have an opportunity to see examples of how teachers are using technology in their daily lessons and preparing today's students for tomorrow's world.

Teachers and students are anxious to showcase the innovative ways in which they have incorporated technology into their school curriculum.
