Saluting Excellence


Canton Public School leaders salute students for  bringing home top honors after competing in the Mississippi Region II Science and Engineering Fair. CPSD students competed with over 1200 students in the two-day Mississippi Region II Science and Engineering Fair. Four of the district's state winners were selected  as BroadCom nominees and will compete with the top 10% of 6-8th graders in the nation for a trip Washington and a grand prize of $25,000. Our BroadCom nominees are:  Aaliyah Archie, Treveze Dunigan, Shata Harmon, and Ta'Prekiah Sutton. These students will compete in the State Science Fair held at the University of Southern Mississippi. The district congratulates all of the students whose outstanding efforts allowed them to compete in  one of the state's largest regional science competitions.

This Regional Fair provides a platform for elementary, middle and high school students from Claiborne, Copiah, Hinds, Madison, Rankin and Warren counties to  showcase their independent research and compete for cash prizes and awards in 10 categories.
