Twenty-seven 6th-8th graders participated in Academic Quest at Lutheran High North last Wednesday. This is an academic competition with other area Lutheran and private Christian schools. Students took a test on one "Open" event where they're competing with 6th-8th graders in some subject matter. This year's categories were mythology, New Testament history, olympics, the novel "The Old Man and the Sea," PSIA artists, geometry, and national parks. Then they competed in grade level subjects where they're competing only against students their own age. Those categories include grammar, science, math, history, and Bible. OSL WON FIRST PLACE OVERALL IN OUR DIVISION. We also took 3rd place in a team event where 5 of our students from various grades competed against other schools in timed tests. Here are the results for students who placed in each category:
