Zoi Hale and Karson Smallwood won judges choice for their Droughts Around the World game.
On Feb. 23, a group of fourth-sixth grade students from DeKalb County Schools participated in the 25th annual Invention Convention at MTSU. The competition allows students from Middle Tennessee to compete for the opportunity to move on to the national competition in Washington D.C. Each individual or team must create an original game or invention to "make life better" with a budget of $20. Eleven teams from Northside Elementary School (NES), DeKalb Middle School (DMS), and DeKalb West School (DWS) participated in the competition. All of our students did an excellent job!
