Scholastic Challenge 2020 Pandemic 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 emailed all schools their student scores, but will not send awards packages and trophy boxes until early September, when hopefully, all schools will have reopened and will be able to receive our mailing.
Please note the following:
1. We have emailed the contest questions with answers to each participating school on Monday, April 27.
2. We have emailed student scores and our final letter with winners' names to all participating schools.
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.
4. Teachers changing schools should provide us with an updated address so that we may direct the results package to the appropriate address.
We thank you for your understanding. 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 2021 taking place online in February, 2021 For the past twenty 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. Ten 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 2021 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.
