After an incredibly exciting day of competition, we are pleased to announce the 2015 Twelve State Champions! Over 250 students competed for the title, putting their heads together to answer tough questions from the core curriculum and wildcard topics like NC Geography and Performing Arts.
Co-champions for the Middle School Division, Randolph Middle School and Ligon Middle School, remained neck and neck throughout the competition. Randolph took an early lead with a perfect 12 in World History and Mathematics, with perfect scores in Arts/Media and Writing, as well.
