Congratulations to our Scholastic Challenge Connecticut State Champions!

Ariella Cuevas, 6th Grade CT State Champion

Soren Nelson, 8th Grade CT State Champion

 

For those who may not be familiar, every year the American Scholastic Achievement League offers a competitive, 100 question test to 6th and 8th grade students called the Scholastic Challenge. It covers a variety of skills in Math, Science, Language, History and Geography. The contest is designed to stimulate students’ interest in learning by incorporating general knowledge, logic, and problem solving skills. Scoring above 60 is seen as exceptional. The sixth grade national average for 2022 was 53 and the eighth grade national average was 56.

Each student who scores the national average or higher receives a Certificate of Merit, and our school’s individual champion will be awarded a medal. The 6th and 8th grade state champion will receive a trophy and a certificate. It is so exciting to announce that for this year's 2022 Scholastic Challenge, Suffield had BOTH 6th and 8th grade State Champions! With a score of 86%, Soren Nelson is the 8th Grade Scholastic Challenge Connecticut State Champion for 2022. Ariella Cuevas scored 84% and was the 6th grade Scholastic Challenge Connecticut State Champion for 2022. Congratulations Soren and Ariella! Additionally, Soren was the State Champion in 2020 when he took this in 6th Grade.
