Stanislaus County middle school and junior high schools sent their best seventh-and eighth-grade students who competed in a series of tests throughout the day.
Young scholars were challenged by a series of speeches, tests, essays and a Super Quiz. The Super Quiz event was open to the public at Prescott Junior High School.
The young scholars who participate in the event are tested in five subject areas — essay, speech, math, science and language and literature. In this way, students earned both team and individual awards.
