2022 Spring America Answers: Grades 7th and 8th 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-nine teams from twenty states took part this year. Based on the number of teams that signed up, we will be awarding three trophies and ribbons in seventh grade and four trophies and ribbons in eighth grade.

In 7th grade, the top team was from Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut with an awesome 1284. Lesher Middle School in Ft. Collins, Colorado is our second-place winner with a super 1204 score. Parkway School in Boone, North Carolina is our third-place winner with a great score of 1192.

Top honors for 8th grade go to the outstanding team from Charles R. Patton Middle School with a contest high score of 1360. Lesher Middle School in Ft. Collins, Colorado will receive the second-place trophy in 8th grade for their superb 1336. The third-place trophy is going to Middlesex Middle School in Darien, Connecticut with another great score of 1335. Fourth place goes to Mount Nittany Middle School with a fine 1290.

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.
