In the Blue Division, congratulations to the Norfolk Public School system, a long-time participant in the WordMasters Challenge™.  Teams from Oceanair Elementary and Bay View Elementary placed in the Top Ten for both 4B and 5B. We also noted several cross-town rivalries at play.  In 6B, two schools from Wisconsin scored within four points of each other: Waunakee Intermediate School (175) and Burlington Area School District (171). Close neighbors also finished within points of each other in Illinois (Highland Middle School in Libertyville with 184 points and Carleton Washburne in Winnetka with 177 points), as well as Troy, Michigan (Boulan Park Middle School with 179 points and Smith Middle School with 177 points).

In the Gold Division, special recognition goes to Spartanburg School District 7, which placed at least one team in the Top Ten for Meet #3 in every grade level! Cross-town rivalries emerged in Dyer, Indiana (Bibich Elementary with 195 points and Protsman Elementary with 191 points in 3B); Naperville, Illinois (Kennedy Junior High with 192 points and Lincoln Junior High with 178 points in 7G); and Greenwich, Connecticut (Western Middle School with 185 points and Eastern Middle School with 180 points in 8G). And kudos to Community Consolidated School District 15 in Palatine, Illinois!  In 4G, four teams landed in the Top Ten separated by only 9 points: Pleasant Hill Elementary (190), Frank C. Whiteley School (187), Winston Campus School (184), and Central Road School (181).  in the 5G division, five Palatine teams placed in the Top Ten: Frank C. Whiteley (193), Marion Jordan (189), Winston Campus (189), Central Road (188) and Pleasant Hill (187). They're definitely doing something right in Palatine!

Geographically, our Outstanding Teams for Meet #3 represent 21 different states from coast to coast. California tops the list for the Blue Division (with 9 teams in the "Top Ten" list across all six grades), followed closely by New Jersey with 7 teams and both Virginia and Illinois with 7 teams each.  In the Gold Division, Illinois boasts the greatest number of "Top Ten" teams (15 teams !). Finishing closely behind is Virginia with18 teams.  When combining both Blue and Gold Divisions, the geographic distribution of Outstanding Teams closely matches the profile of total teams participating in the WordMasters Challenge™:

As always, we encourage you to carefully review the test results and lead discussions about the correct answers with your students.  This is one of the most important aspects of the WordMasters Challenge™ that can often be overlooked when wrapping up one meet period and starting the next. Although the team competition can be a powerful motivator, reassure your students that their personal growth and improvement is what truly matters.

Please be sure to examine the charts that follow the lists of Outstanding Teams, which are the best tools to use in assessing your own students' achievements.
