christiancountypublicschools 300CHRISTIAN COUNTY, Ky. (11/21/13) — Thirteen schools across Christian County competed in the Student Teacher Leadership Program regional competition Nov. 7 in Murray, Ky. As a result, 10 schools from Christian County will advance to the state competition to be held in April.

The STLP competition is similar to a science fair, but with a focus on technology. To compete, a project must follow rubric guidelines from either the commercial, technical or instructional division of the STLP contest. Students in kindergarten through college are always welcomed and encouraged to participate in projects.

Schools that competed in the regional competition include Christian County High, Hopkinsville High, North Drive Middle, Hopkinsville Middle, Christian County Middle, Millbrooke, Pembroke, Sinking Fork, South Christian, Indian Hills, Belmont, Lacy, and Holiday Elementary School.

In order to advance to the state competition, projects entered in the regional, must have received at least a "105" out the "118" point rubric for their project division. Schools that advance to state include: Millbrooke, Pembroke, Sinking Fork, South Christian, Indian Hills, North Drive Middle, Hopkinsville Middle, Christian County Middle and Hopkinsville High School. Cannon Cornelius, student at CCHS, was named STLP engineer for Region 1.

Kay Harrison, STLP coordinator for CCPS, says "STLP is an awesome program that ALL students can benefit from. With technology ever-evolving, it is important for students to stay caught up with its' changes and advancements." Harrison has been the STLP coordinator for eight years and serves on the STLP council for the state of Kentucky.
