Spring America Answers: Grades 5 & 6

Spring America Answers 2021 is over! The contest went well this year and the scores are great. One-hundred eighty teams from twenty-six states signed up this year. Based on the number of takers, we will be awarding four trophies in fifth grade and four trophies in sixth grade.

In 5th grade, the top team was from Lynnewood Elementary in Havertown, Pennsylvania with an awesome 1231. West Deptford Middle School in West Deptford, New Jersey, is our second place winner with a super 1225 score. The third place trophy and ribbons will be sent to Meridian Ranch Elementary School in Peyton, Colorado, with a great score of 1221. A fine 1207 score secured 4th place for the team from Sunflower Elementary in Andover, Kansas.

Top honors for 6th grade go to the outstanding team from Eagle View Middle School in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, with a contest high score of 1323. Sunset Hills Elementary in Omaha, Nebraska, will receive the second place trophy in 6th grade for their superb 1318. Lesher Middle School in Fr. Collins, Colorado, with their excellent score of 1303 is our third place winner. The home for the fourth place trophy in 6th grade is Oakhill Day School in Gladstone, Missouri, for their super 1286.

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 appreciate all you have done to make this year of covid work. Hopefully next year will be more normal for us all. 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.
