Tech savvy students with innovative ideas will get a chance to demonstrate their skills over the course of several weeks as part of the Kentucky Department of Education's Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP). This year, the 2018 STLP Regionals welcomed an additional 500 participants to the events.
During Tuesday's competition, students and their project boards filled WKU's basketball court, as well as an auxiliary gym. When it was time for judging, students stood next to their booths and waited to present their projects to judging officials.
Todd County School District had four teams participate in the showcase event:
- Todd County Central High School: Project – Easier Said Than Done
- Student led podcast on various topics pertaining to local and world views.
- Todd County Central High School: Project – Spilled Ink

Todd County Superintendent Ed Oyler said the STLP regional competition is “a great opportunity for our students to really showcase their learning and their leadership skills that they've gained while being in the classrooms at Todd County Schools. STLP provides our students with an opportunity to create, implement ideas and showcase project-based learning”
