Western Kansas Technology Education Fair

The 60th Annual Western Kansas Technology Education Fair will be held at Gross Coliseum on May 3, 2019. This event invites junior high and high school students in a Technology Education class to bring their projects to be displayed and judged. On Thursday, (May 2) teachers and students bring their projects to the campus to be checked in and on Friday students, faculty, and the general public are welcome to come and see all the furniture, CAD drawings, metal works and various other projects, completed by the students. Doors open to the public on Friday, May 3, at 8:00 AM and projects can be viewed until 3:30 PM. Each entry is judged and awarded a ribbon or medal. There are live competitions available for students as well. At the end of the day (typically about 4 PM), awards are given. There is no charge to come and view projects.
