Winter weather decreased attendance at the annual Scholastic Day Contest to nine high schools from 42 and 177 students from the nearly 1,150 that were expected.

Each senior who won first place in an exam received a Scholastic Achievement Award for in-state tuition to CSC for the Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 semesters.

The winners of each test will receive a CSC sweatshirt and medals will be awarded to the top three students in each test. Those finishing in the top 25 percent of each test will receive certificates of merit while all participants will receive certificates of participation.

Clubs and departments provided numerous activities such as an escape room, an open mic and concert for students while they were not taking tests.

No schools competed in Divisions I or II. Final results can be viewed online.
