Information on Student Competition

Students from selected teachers of grades 3 through 12 will be offered the opportunity to compete and submit their explanations of their solutions to one of two problems given.  Explanations can be written, audio, video or a combination thereof.  Submissions will be evaluated on the content and clarity of the explanation and not on the type of medium used to communicate it.  Teacher attendees at the conference will be able to peruse the student work and talk to student competitors should they choose to attend. Judges will score each submission on the basis of a rubric. Top achievers at each grade level will be recognized and awarded prizes.

Check out the problems and more information on student competition by clicking link below. Because we don't have an infinite supply of judges to score student entries, we have to control the number of teachers we invite to have their students participate--but WE HAVE ROOM TO ADD MORE TEACHERS. Please contact our Student Competition Coordinator  Lori Fury  at <lfury@wpusd.k12.ca.us> if you are interested in having your students participate.  Each teacher can submit 2 student entries, but you can have your own internal class competition, and then send the 2 best entries in to be part of our competition.
