Breanna Granston competed in Early Childhood Education where she developed and demonstrated an age-appropriate lesson for kindergarten students focusing on the selected theme of “Under the Sea”.
Heidy Woods competed in Illustrated Talk with her “TKO Targeting Kids Online” project. Woods educated high school students about the dangers on the Internet and social networks.
