About Us 

     Genesee Community College Tech Wars 2009 is a competition for high school and middle school technology students in the GLOW region.  Because this is the first of what we hope will be an annual event, only GLOW Region County schools (Genesee, Livingston, Orleans and Wyoming) are invited to participate.  If you're not a GLOW region school check back with us next year when we expect to open up the competition to schools outside our area.

     Our goal in hosting this event is to allow students to take what they learn in the Technology classrooms and compete in a hands-on educational yet fun program.  (specific events are listed on the contest rules page.)  Hopefully the interest in this competition will help to boost enrollments of technology classes because what is learned there can be transferred to the world of home and work almost on a daily basis.  Ultimately the imagination of some students may go beyond the classroom where they develop such a deep interest in Technology that they make a career of it.  Some day those students may come back as a teacher or mentor of the technology students of the future.
