SHS Hosts Tech Now Competition
Rusty Anderson

The Tech Now State Competition was April 24 at Southmoore High School with teams and more than 200 students attending from across Oklahoma. Each paper car was designed by students on computers and then constructed using paper, glue, and nickels (for weight) to a set standard for fair races. Way to go, racers and SHS for hosting!

This event is sponsored by the Department of Rehabilitation Services and has existed for more than 20 years. According to a 2022 article by The Oklahoman, DRS served 82,533 Oklahomans with disabilities in 2021 with career preparation, employment, residential and outreach education, independent living programs and the determination of medical eligibility for disability benefits.

The agency assists job seekers with disabilities overcome barriers to employment and assists Oklahoma employers to find qualified, job-ready employees who become taxpayers. For more information, visit or phone 800-845-8476.
