The Akamai Challenge Winners
The Akamai Challenge is a Hawaiian themed STEM based challenge where small groups of students solve, build, and complete separate timed challenges. The best teams competed at Discovery Park for the title of “Big Kahuna.” Among the competitors were 4 middle schools and 2 elementary schools where South Fulton Elementary won the “Big Kahuna” title.
On March 31, 2017, Obion County Schools will submit an application for a Lottery for Education Afterschool Program (LEAPS) and a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. Both grants, if awarded, will provide afterschool programs for students at South Fulton Elementary, Black Oak and Ridgemont Schools that are considered at risk. Approximately 70 students from each site could be selected. Nikki Netherland, at South Fulton Elementary, can be contacted for additional information.
