Elementary students shine at regional Governor’s Cup competition

G.R. Hampton's Governor's Cup competitors

From quick recall to content area knowledge experts, Knox County’s elementary students shined at the regional Governor’s Cup competition at Williamsburg Elementary on Saturday, March 4.

“Several of our district schools, including Central, Flat Lick, Girdler, G.R. Hampton, Lay, and Lynn Camp, had students advance to the regional competition,” said Jennifer Carey, gifted and talented coordinator for the school district.

“Congratulations to those who placed at the region,” said Carey. She stated that in Governor’s Cup, elementary students only advance to the regional level and do not have a statewide competition like those in middle and high school.
