Scholastic Challenge 2017
March Update - Many Deadline Extension Requests!
1. Contest Deadline
Please note that because of numerous weather-related school closures in many parts of the country, (and many requests) we have extended our deadline from March 1 to March 15. Student scores in our system by March 15 will be included in the national results. The system is set up to accept and present scores until the end of April each year, but please complete by Tuesday, March 15, and your student scores will be included in the national results.
2. Last Minute Registrations
We will still accept last minute registrations. However, to include student scores in the national results, late registrants must also complete the contest by March 15. Please register on the "Teacher Registration" link above and we will email instructions and passwords shortly after.
3. Technical Support
Our technical support team will be available until March 15, Monday through Friday from 9 -5 EST, by telephone. (1 866 928 3265)
4. Questions and Answers
Each participating school will receive a copy of the contest questions with answers for follow-up activities, by email in the third week of April.
5. Results and Awards
We hope to have all results and awards packages mailed by the middle of April. Please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery.
Thank you for your support and participation in Scholastic Challenge 2017!
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.
