Bi-lo Center’s Invention Convention Awards
Hughes Academy was well represented last night during the Bi-lo Center’s Invention Convention Awards Ceremony. Our students won 1st Place and 2nd Place for the Sixth Grade. Shreya Thammana and Alka Manoj won 1st Place with their invention – Mirro-Loco 2013 and Christopher Cameron won 2nd Place with his invention – Sonic Item Locator (See attached pictures). This is a wonderful accomplishment as there are hundreds of projects from all over the Upstate and the competition is stiff. It is good to be a Cougar!!!
