COVINGTON, Ga. - Four Newton County School System (NCSS) middle and high school students brought home awards from the recent Georgia Science and Engineering Fair (GSEF)! In order to participate in the State Science Fair, students must first have won at both their local school system science fair and their regional science fair.
