3. Get your students qualified for state
There are several opportunities to qualify for state this year, and your students may participate in any or all of these in order to maximize their chances to qualify for state. Students and teams may qualify to attend the state championship by attaining at least 50% on any event at one of our qualifying rounds.
- January qualifying round - once your membership payment is received, you will be emailed the January tests, which you may administer in your school anytime before February 14. Your membership fee will allow four teams from your school to participate in this test (a total of 24 students for large schools or 12 students for small schools), but you may have additional students participate for a small fee. This will be explained further in the instructions you receive along with the tests.
- February and March qualifying sites - various schools are hosting contests throughout February and March; in order to attend one of these contests you will need to contact the site coordinator for information about start time, entry fees, and exact location. Confirmed sites so far are as follows:
