2022 Spring America Answers: Grades 5th and 6th Spring America Answers 2022 is over! Hats off to all the teams who in spite of all the past virus challenges and difficulties, it seems like a normal year once again and the scores are great. One hundred and thirty-four teams from twenty-one states took part this year. Based on the number of teams that signed up, we will be awarding three trophies and ribbons in fifth grade and four trophies and ribbons in sixth grade.

In 5th grade, the top team was from Lynnewood Elementary in Havertown, Pennsylvania with an awesome 1359. Waynesboro Area Schools in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania is our second-place winner with a super 1305 score. Providence Spring Elementary in Charlotte, North Carolina is our third-place winner with a great score of 1285.

Top honors for 6th grade go to the outstanding team from Westminster Schools in Atlanta, Georgia with a contest high score of 1366. Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut will receive the second-place trophy in 6th grade for their superb 1360. The third-place trophy is going to Andover Middle School in Andover, Kansas with another great score of 1308. Fourth place goes to St. John Lutheran School in Seward, Nebraska with a fine 1307.

The trophies and ribbons will be sent soon. 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 percent only to break score ties since they do not consider 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 do for the students in your school. We hope you and your students enjoyed this challenge and learned some new things.

Please consider participating again next Fall and we appreciate any good references you give us. Look for an entry form for next fall soon on our web site.
