America Answers 7th/8th Grade America Answers 2018 Results!

America Answers 2018 is over! The contest went well this year and the scores are great. One hundred ninety-two teams from twenty-seven states took part this year. We had 75 seventh grade teams sign up and 127 eighth grade teams. Based on the number of takers, we will be awarding three trophies in 7th grade and five trophies in 8th grade.

In 7th grade, the top team was from Chamblee Middle School in Chamblee, Georgia with an awesome 1286. Boulan Park Middle School in Troy, Michigan is our second place winner with a fine 1267 score. The third place trophy and ribbons will be sent to Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut with a close score of 1266.

Top honors for 8th grade go to another outstanding team from Station Middle School in Barrington, Illinois with a contest high score of 1329. Mount Nittany Middle School in State College, Pennsylvania is our second place winner with the second highest contest score of 1325. Chamblee Middle School in Chamblee, Georgia will receive the third place trophy in 8th grade for their superb 1316. Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut, with their great 1313 score, is our fourth place winner. The home for the fifth place trophy in 8th grade is Westminster Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for their so close score of 1312.

The trophies and ribbons will be sent in about a week and a half. We suggest you print the results. For those who have not participated before, the first column in the results is your rank within your grade pool. The second column called “Overall” is the rank your team would be if you combined the two grade levels and is just for your information. We use percents only to break score ties since they do not take into account the speed of the answer or if it was a second time right answer.

For those of you who took this America Answers contest, it will be available as an online practice quiz for free starting next fall. We certainly have enjoyed working with you on this contest and the earlier ones. We hope you and your students enjoyed this challenge and learned some new things. Please consider participating again next year and we appreciate any good references you give us. If you want an entry form for next year before we mail you one, check our website in the fall for one.
