B-R is top in scholastic contest

A total of 32 students at Bancroft-Rosalie Community School participated in the Northeast Community College Scholastic Contest recently.

The B-R students bested 32 other class D schools to take first place overall. This is the first time in school history that B-R has won the overall competition.

During the contest, students were tested on subjects such as accounting I and II, administrative professional, agri-science, algebra I and II, American government and history, geography, music, physics, technical mathematics, art history, auto body and frame dimension diagnosis (written and lab), automotive technology (written and lab), basic construction (written and lab), biology, business English, business law, calculus, chemistry, computer literacy, drafting, and English composition.

B-R will receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Northeast Community College Foundation for taking first. The scholarship is to be presented to a student from the winning school who participated in the 2018 Scholastic Contest, will graduate this spring and register as a full-time student at Northeast for the 2018-2019 academic year. This is also the third year that Northeast will award tuition waivers valued at $1,000 to 12 seniors in each class that earned first place in their exam. The winners will be determined based on the highest percentage earned on the respective tests.
