2017-18 WordMasters Challenge™ 
Meet #1 Results

 

Congratulations to all the students who participated in the first meet of the 2017-18 WordMasters Challenge™, especially to those representing the Top Ten schools in each division listed below.  

Team Leaders, please reassure your students that many participants who found the first meet somewhat daunting usually see that their scores improve in Meets #2 and #3 as they have a clearer expectation of the test content and how to prepare effectively.  Remember that your goal should be individual and team improvement over time.  The most critical step in the WordMasters Challenge™ process is reviewing the tests and discussing the logic behind the analogies.  Don't skip this important activity!

In the BLUE DIVISION, the 6th Grade Challenge proved particularly difficult, with a median team score of 133 and only 3 perfect scores: Owen from Fairfield Country Day School in CT, Tate from Congressional School of Virginia, and Neel from Peterson Middle School in CA.  It's great to see teams and individuals from all over the country -- North, South, East and West -- achieving superior results. Special congratulations to Northpoint Elementary School in Granger, IN, whose teams earned first place in both the third and fourth grade divisions. And a shout out to the sixth graders at Beacon Park Middle School in Irvine, CA, for placing fourth in the nation in their very first WordMasters Challenge -- and to Team Leader Anna Nguyen for introducing the Challenge to her new school.

The 6th Grade Challenge was also especially arduous in the GOLD DIVISION of the WordMasters Challenge™, with a median team score of 138 points.  There were no perfect scores reported for 6G, and only 60 students earned 18 or 19 points. On the other hand, we had nearly one hundred fourth graders score a perfect 20 on the Meet #1 test, and 500 scoring 18 or 19 points!  

Team Leaders, if you had one or more teams place among the Top Ten in its division and/or any of your students earned a perfect score, we will be sending you a DRAFT press release by January 1st.  Since we email the press releases as Word documents, you may edit and distribute the press release at your discretion.  If you would like to create your own press release, there is a downloadable template here on our Teacher Tools page.

Be sure to examine the charts that follow the lists of Outstanding Teams, which are the best tools for assessing your own students' achievements.  Please keep in mind that many children are participating in their first WordMasters Challenge™ and should not be discouraged by a low score.  As always, students scoring 18 or better should be extremely proud of their achievement.

Congratulations to the following Outstanding Teams in the Blue Division
