(Neb)-Attendance At Postponed CSC Scholastic Contest Down About 2/3
CHADRON - The 58th Chadron State College Scholastic Contest, postpone for a month by a blizzard, drew about a third of its normal participation last Wednesday with 483 students from 24 high schools taking part.
Classes, previously scheduled activities, and graduations all affected the number of students and schools participating this year.
Still, attendance was about 3 times higher than last year when the contest was not postponed despite catching the tail end of a winter storm and only 9 schools and 177 students took part.
Plaques are awarded to the top school in each of 5 enrollment divisions, but a third of the schools competing this year were ineligible because their students didn't take enough tests to meet the minimum for their division. One division, Division II, had no entries at all.
Chadron High repeated as the champion in Division III with Valentine second. Custer (SD) competed but did not meet the minimum threshold of 25 tests.
Rapid City Stevens, one of the regulars who didn't attend last year because of the storm, claimed the Division 1 title for the 11th time.
Gering was second and 5 other Division I schools attended but were not ranked since they did not meet the minimum threshold of 40 tests.
Those were Scottsbluff, Douglas (Wyoming), Douglas (South Dakota), Sturgis-Brown (South Dakota), and Pine Ridge (South Dakota).
Rapid City Christian won first place in Division IV, and Bennett County High School was second. Crawford competed, but did not meet the minimum threshold of 20 tests.
Hay Springs placed first in Division V, and Arthur County (Nebraska) was second. Creek Valley competed but did not meet the minimum threshold of 15 tests.
Each student participant received a certificate, each finishing in the top 25% of their test received a certificate of merit, medals went to the top 3 in each test, all winners received a CSC sweatshirt, and all seniors who placed 1st earned a one-year tuition waiver to CSC.
Complete results can be viewed online.
