The 9th grade students of the BRVGS World History classes have recently completed a group website project, in which teams of students from different BRVGS schools feature the most important inventions (as determined by the team) of different historical civilizations. The teams were grouped geographically into two different sets of schools for logistics - Orange, Greene and Madison (otherwise known as "OGM") students created one set of sites, while the Fluvanna, Goochland, Louisa and Nelson ("FGLN") created the other. 

To view the World History sites, go to:

In the interest of sharing the accomplishments of these student, we are holding a "Website Contest" in which students and the general public will vote separately for their favorite websites in the following categories:

1.  Most Appealing Appearance
2.  Best Use of Information
3.  Best Overall

Click on  BRVGS Website Voting to find links to the voting forms. 

Voting will be open until 10:00 AM on December 30th.  Each set of schools (OGM and FGLN) will have winners in each of those categories, and winning groups will receive prizes once all voting is done.  We encourage friends, family and the public to take part in recognizing the accomplishments of our World History Students this semester!
