GREAT COMPUTER CHALLENGE WINNERS ANNOUNCED

The junior division (grades K-5) of the Great Computer Challenge competition featuring 132 teams of students from local schools was Saturday, May 3, in Webb University Center at Old Dominion University.

The challenge is a competition for students to demonstrate their skills in various computer applications and computer programming through a series of questions, judges entries based on originality, creativity, fulfillment of the problems' requirements and effective use of the computer.
