(Neb)-CSC Gearing Up For 58th Scholastic Contest

By: John Axtell Posted at: 04/02/2018 11:56 PM
CHADRON - Chadron State College is gearing up for this Friday's 58th annual Scholastic Contest, one of the oldest and largest competitions of its kind in the Midwest.

       Nearly 1,150 students from 42 high schools in 3 states have registered for competition on more than 40 academic tests in nearly 20 disciplines. Final results can be viewed online following the competition.

      Medals will be awarded to the top 3 placers in each test and certificates of merit to the top 25% in each. All competitors will receive certificates of participation and a CSC T-shirt.

       The winner of each test will also receive a CSC sweatshirt while each winning senior will get a CSC Scholastic Achievement Award covering in-state tuition for this fall and next spring.

       CSC students have Friday off, but many will be helping with the Scholastic Contest in one form or another as several clubs and organizations will provide entertainment for the high school students between tests from 9-1:00.

    Entertainment options include an Escape Room, Club and Department Fair and Photo Booth in the Student Center, rides with the National Guard from the Lindeken Clock Tower, and group fitness demonstrations and intramural sports in the Nelson Physical Activity Center.

    Other events sponsored by campus clubs and departments include: Brain Games from 9 a.m. to noon in Miller 104, Blood Splatter Demonstrations from 11 a.m. to noon in the Old Admin Forensics Lab, yard games from 10 a.m. 1 p.m. south of High Rise, Faculty/Student Concert at 11:30 a.m. in Memorial Hall, and an Open Mic session from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.

     One very popular event the past several years, the Eagle Cook-Off, isn't being held this year. Organizers say staffing and other conflicts forced its cancellation but that they're looking forward to bringing it back next year, better than ever.
