Thirty-two teams from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio signed up for the 2017-2018 CORN BELT 7TH/8TH GRADE THINKING CAP QUIZ BOWL so we will be awarding a trophy and ribbons for 1st place in both 7th grade and 8th grade. Congratulations to our winning teams on a contest well taken! We hope they and all the rest had a good time and learned a bit in the process.

Winning 1st place in 7th grade is the team from Fishers Junior High in Fishers, Indiana with a great 1282. A super score of 1291 means that the team from Saint Anne Parish School in Barrington, Illinois won 1st place bragging rights in the 8th grade pool.

We will mail out the trophies and ribbons after Thanksgiving. If your students enjoyed this contest, we’d love to have you participate in our spring, nationwide internet contest called America Answers. You can find information and a printable form on our website. This contest gives you a 2 week period of time to complete it so it is convenient for your busy schedule. The dates this year are April 9 - 20, 2018. Thank you so much for your participation
