State STLP 2023

All about the State STLP championship!

This year I had the pleasure of attending the STLP  State Championship for the first time. I was amazed by the exciting projects and activities for everyone to experience and enjoy. STLP stands for The Student Technology Leadership Program. Every year, students of all ages meet to show off how they’ve turned their innovative ideas into tangible things. There are a lot of different categories for these projects; Some include community service, digital creation, instructional, and many more. The most outstanding projects, services, and products are invited to compete for first place at the annual STLP State Championship. Our very own Woodford County High School students competed in this year’s STLP State Championship. This list of students and their events can be seen below.
