National Beta Competition Results

Monday, July 20, 2020

This summer, the National Beta Convention was moved online to provide students with the opportunity to compete virtually. When a student places in the top 3 in the State Convention, the representing school has the chance to participate in the same category at the National Convention. The Indiana Academy placed nine times in the State Convention meaning that we had nine opportunities to compete. Students had a twenty-five day window in June to submit their work for the National Convention, and the top ten participants in each category were recognized for their efforts.

The following students placed in the top ten for their respective competitions:

Lucy Cochard – 2nd Place 12th Grade Language Arts Testing
Andrew Pilat – 4th Place 11th Grade Science Testing
Shelby Schipper – 6th Place Onsite Painting Division II*
Izzy Wade – 9th Place Creative Writing Division II
*Division II means that the competition is completed by both juniors and seniors.

Congratulations to Izzy, Shelby, Andrew, and Lucy for their accomplishments!
