KiDtalk: talks from the minds of kids
Presented by the Cobb County School District

Here are the 2017 KiDtalk and TeacherTalk Winners!

The Cobb County School District is excited to announce the 2017 KiDtalk winners. The KiDtalk contest was designed to give students the forum to share their groundbreaking ideas.

This year’s KiDtalks & TeacherTalks shared how they are committed to impacting their world, community and/or school by…”

The KiDtalk and TeacherTalk contests support knowledge, innovation and deeper learning. These are three essential components of teaching and learning for Cobb students, according to Director of Instruction and Innovation, Melissa Morse. “This is a perfect combination of engaging student learning, using relevant social and video platforms to keep the connection real for students and letting student voice inspire. Our students and teachers love the challenge of high-level learning and the KiDtalk contest is the perfect forum for students of any age to make their thinking relevant and their insight be heard.”

The KiDtalk & TeacherTalk contest was open to all students in the district. We had over 140 KiDtalk submissions from students in kindergarten to 12th grade and teachers from across the district!
