- Note: Programming Challenge category divisions are 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12 ONLY
Students register by their current grade level. There is no separate team competition. You may have up to 2 people on a team but teams and individuals will compete against each other within each grade grouping.
Projects for each category must be unique and cannot be entered in more than one category. Students may enter only one project, and may additionally enter the Programming Challenge.

Mailed registration forms will not be accepted. No registrations will be taken at the competition.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO LOCKSTEP FOR FULLY
As a result of Lockstep sponsoring the 2020 Forsyth Regional Technology Competition, students and teams must register as normal for the event. There will be NO REGISTRATION FEE this year!
After the deadline, your school ITS will contact you to confirm the category of your project to prevent confusion. Private school contacts and parents of home schoolers will be contacted for the same purpose.
Please register carefully.
- Type your name as you want it to appear on all records. All participant information will be merged from the registration form. If you spell your name without capital letters, then your information will not have capital letters. Misspellings will also not be corrected. It is your responsibility to enter the correct information.
- Type your email contact address carefully. We use this to confirm your registration. Registrations without email addresses will not be accepted. Participants with invalid email addresses will miss important updates and information about the fair. The Tech Competition is NOT responsible for missed information or changes sent in emails to invalid email addresses.
Read the category descriptions before you select your project category. No changes will be made after the project has been confirmed by the school ITS. After that time, students' projects will be judged based on the category for which they registered.
Changes in category WILL NOT be made for any reason the day of the fair. Projects will be judged by the rubric of the category under which the project was submitted.
IMPORTANT!! Registration confirmations will be emailed by Sunday, January 19, 2020. If you have registered for the Tech Competition and do not receive an email by Monday, January 20, 2020, please contact us (email@example.com)
Due to an overwhelming response to our competition, students may enter ONLY ONE (1) project, plus the Technology Literacy Challenge, and the Programming Challenge.
