Spring America Answers 7th/8th Grade America Answers 2021 Results!

Spring America Answers 2021 is over! The contest went well this year and the scores are great. One hundred sixty-one teams from twenty sign up this year. We had 63 seventh grade teams sign up and 98 eighth grade teams. 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 Warren Middle School in Warren, New Jersey with an awesome 1244. Lesher Middle School in Ft. Collins, Colorado is our second place winner with a super 1241 score. The third place trophy and ribbons will be sent to Regina School in Iowa City, Iowa with a fine score of 1233.

Top honors for 8th grade go to another outstanding team from Mount Nittany Middle School in State College Pennsylvania with a contest high score of 1348. George White Middle School in Hillsdale, New Jersey is our second place winner with the second highest contest score of 1346. Park Forest Middle School in State College, Pennsylvania will receive the third place trophy in 8th grade for their superb 1318. John Muir Middle School in Wausau, Wisconsin with their great 1286 score, 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 appreciate all you have done to make this year of Covid-19 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.
