Scholastic Challenge 2020 Update
As of today, we have all scores in the system, have identified awards winners, and have submitted names for engraving. Normally we would have packaged and mailed results by the first or second week of April. However, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, our supply chain of medals, certificates, and trophies has been upended, and it appears as though many schools may not reopen this school year. Therefore we have decided to email all schools their student scores by the end of April, and then send awards packages and trophy boxes at a later date. Please bear with us and refer to our website's homepage to keep informed of future developments.
Please note the following:
1. We will email the contest questions with answers to each participating school on Monday, April 27.
2. We do not yet know when packages and trophy boxes will be sent. (they may not go out until all schools open in September)
3. We will post national and state champions names to our website archives at the end of June. Some schools will be holding virtual awards assemblies, giving teachers a chance to acknowledge students and their awards. Hopefully other teachers have a way of communicating contest results to their students even though many schools will be closed.
We thank you for your understanding, and know that together, we can get through all of this and have a great Scholastic Challenge 2021! Please stay safe and continue the great work you do for your students, your school, and your community.
The American Scholastic Achievement League extends to you an invitation to enter your students in Scholastic Challenge 2020 taking place online in February, 2020. For the past nineteen 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. Nine 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.
It is our hope that Scholastic Challenge 2020 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.
