Teams of twelve students tackle twelve topics with twelve questions each. Twelve is an original competition developed by the North Carolina Association for Scholastic Activities (NCASA).



After a great day of competition, where over 450 students were tested in their knowledge of the core curriculum and wildcard categories such as Sports and NC History, we are excited to announce our Regional Champs and schools who advanced to the State Final.

NCASA held the Twelve State Finals Saturday, December 14 at Rogers-Herr Middle School of Durham. The high school division was nip and tuck all the way to the final round with four teams vying for first place. After the final round, Ardrey Kell HS and Myers Park HS were tied for first place. These teams competed in an overtime round which also ended in a tie. The competition was declared a tie with both teams being crowned as co-Champions with 111 points. These two schools finished one point ahead of Simon G Atkins A&T HS and Thomas Jefferson Classical Academy which tied for third place with 110 points.

Rounding out the top six finishers were Northwood HS (97) and Hickory HS (92).

Myers Park won the Algebra / Geometry and World History rounds while Ardrey Kell won the Physical Sciences and US History rounds.

Finishing in first place in the middle school division with a runaway victory was Jay M Robinson Middle School of Charlotte who tallied 76 points.

More than 400 students from schools across North Carolina competed in the fifth annual Twelve Regional Competitions. Students were tested on their knowledge of the core curriculum plus wildcard topics including sports and NC Government.
