Scholastic Challenge 2017
Thank you for supporting and helping to make Scholastic Challenge 2017 a great success. Many students produced some incredible scores in this year's academic competition.
1. Results and Awards
Our results and awards packages have been prepared and were mailed to participating schools on Wednesday, April 12. Our past experiences with USPS indicate that 3 days to 3 weeks is a normal delivery schedule, although a few packages have occasionally taken longer for some reason.
Each participating school will receive a copy of the contest questions with answers for follow-up activities by email in the last week of April.
3. Updated Archives
Our website's archive pages with award winners' names and schools will be updated with this year's results at the end of the school year (after June 30).
4. Awards Ceremonies
We encourage teachers, parents, and participants to send us any photos of winners or copies of local print media acknowledging students' performances so we can promote and share their achievements.
5. New School Recruitment Program
Teachers that have promoted Scholastic Challenge 2017 to at least 2 other schools or to 1 school that registered students in both 6th and 8th grade divisions will be contacted shortly to receive their "reward" (either a $70 registration fee refund, or a credit for their school's participation in Scholastic Challenge 2018). We hope to continue this program once again next year.
Thank you for your continued support and participation in Scholastic Challenge. Have a safe and happy summer!
The American Scholastic Achievement League extends to you an invitation to enter your students in Scholastic Challenge 2017 taking place online in February, 2017. For the past sixteen years, eighth grade students have been provided with an entertaining and challenging enrichment activity that allows them to demonstrate a variety of problem solving skills and knowledge in many academic areas. Six years ago, we introduced a second division that is designed to academically challenge students in the sixth grade.
Your students will enjoy competing in our online competition with other sixth grade or eighth grade students in schools everywhere. They will be able to compete as individuals and also as members of your school's team in a unique, interesting and educational program.
Trophies, plaques, medals and certificates will be awarded for achievement in individual and school team categories in both the 6th grade and 8th grade divisions.
To register your sixth grade or eighth grade students, or both, please select the grade appropriate Teacher Registration link from our navigation above, and complete and submit by January 15, 2017.
It is our hope that Scholastic Challenge 2017 is used as a strong motivational tool that will stimulate your students' quest for knowledge, and provide them with the joy and satisfaction of meeting new academic challenges.
We look forward to your participation.
