Over the weekend local students gathered virtually with ODU and WHRO Public Media staff for the 36th annual Great Computer Challenge (GCC). Congratulations to all the winners!

GCC 2021winners

Students from the Governor's School placed first in the Level 4 Graphic Design category.

The GCC is a joint project of WHRO, the Consortium for Interactive Instruction and Old Dominion University that provides an opportunity to recognize student achievement, foster teamwork and introduce students to a college environment. Teams of students compete in categories such as Desktop Publishing, Object-Oriented Business Programming, Graphic and Web Design, Music Composition, Video Editing and more. Categories were a bit limited this year due to the event having to be virtual, but students still enjoyed the opportunity to test their skills.
