HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Computers and robots filled the South Hall of the Von Braun Center Friday as students competed in the Northwest Regional Alabama Council for Technology in Education Fair.

ACTE has worked 20 years to promote and enhance the use of technology in schools and give students the opportunity to demonstrate how they are using it in their classrooms.

Kids in grades 3-12 presented projects in six different categories:  Computer Programming, Web Design, Multimedia, Robotics, Video production and General Applications.

Judges critiqued individual and group projects separately. Students were also able to compete individually in the Information Technology test.  First and second place winners in all categories are eligible to compete in the State ACTE Fair in Montgomery on April 27th.

WHNT NEWS 19’s Venton Blandin was a part of the fair for a 5th year. He announced the winners.
