In a state-wide Georgia Student Technology Competition (GASTC) for grades 3 to 12, two sisters—Aratrika (Rimjhim) Kar and Urjoshi (Brishti) Kar, 9th graders at Alpharetta High School—won the top prize in graphics animation.
Projects were designed and created by students for each of the various technology category. Over 8,000 students participated statewide last year, with 1,000 going on to state level.

The sisters also recently had a debate win:
At the Westminster Debate Tournament, Alpharetta had 8 students competing. The team of Aratrika Kar and Urjoshi Kar won the novice division of the tournament. Congratulations to Aratrika and Urjoshi on this outstanding accomplishment, and special thanks to Shreya Sachdeva, Pooja Udeshi, Isha Deshmukh, Shloka Danave, and Saanya Saurabh for all of their help preparing the novice teams for their rounds at Westminster.
