America Answers 7th/8th Grade America Answers 2019 Results!

America Answers 2019 is over! The contest went well this year and the scores are great. One hundred sixty-six teams from twenty states signed up this year. We had 70 seventh grade teams sign up and 96 eighth grade teams sign up. Based on the number of takers, we will be awarding three trophies in 7th grade and four trophies in 8th grade.

In 7th grade, the top team was from Chamblee Middle School in Chamblee, Georgia with an awesome 1343. Andover Middle School in Andover, Kansas is our second place winner with a fine 1278 score. The third place trophy and ribbons will be sent to Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut with a nice score of 1264.

Top honors for 8th grade go to an outstanding team from Boulan Park Middle School in Troy, Michigan with a contest high score of 1355. Chamblee Middle School in Chamblee, Georgia is our second place winner with the second highest contest score of 1348. Charles F. Patton Middle School in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania will receive the third place trophy in 8th grade for their superb 1343 and their tie breaking 99% correct. Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut, with their same score of 1343 but had 97% correct is our fourth place winner.

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.
