Contest Results

America Answers: Grades 5 & 6

America Answers 2019 is over! The contest went well this year and the scores are great. Two hundred and three teams from twenty-six states signed up this year. Based on the number of takers, we will be awarding five trophies in fifth grade and five trophies in sixth grade.

In 5th grade, the top team was from Wheatland Elementary School in Wichita, Kansas, with an awesome 1267. Fairview Elementary School in Columbia Missouri, is our second place winner with a super 1209 score. The third place trophy and ribbons will be sent to Bluewater Elementary School in Niceville, Florida with a great score of 1206. A fine 1192 score secured 4th place for the team from Dixie Bee Elementary School in Terre Haute, Indiana. 5th place trophy and ribbons goes to Riverside Elementary School in Crestview, Florida, with a finishing score of 1157.

Top honors for 6th grade go to the outstanding team from Charles F. Patton Middle School in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, with a contest high score of 1339. Park Forest Middle School in State College, Pennsylvania, will receive the second place trophy in 6th grade for their superb 1279 with 99% correct. Westminster Schools (Southeast) in Atlanta, Georgia, with their matching score of 1279 but with 94% correct is our third place winner. The home for the fourth place trophy in 6th grade is Rogers Middle School in Pearland, Texas, for their super 1241. The 6th grade team from Holdrege Middle School in Holdrege, Nebraska, with a fine score of 1269 is our 5th place finisher.

The trophies and ribbons will be sent in a week. We suggest you print the results. We print at 80%. 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 percentages 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 you are mailed one, in September please go to our web site.
