Chadron State College - Scholastic Competition To Publications / Articles

Posted 3/5/20

My name is Jennifer Mendyka and, on behalf of the Chadron State College Scholastic Contest Committee, I am trying to get the word out to homeschoolers about the CSC Scholastic Contest.

The Scholastic Contest is a proud and honored CSC tradition which recognizes the academic achievements of our area high schools students. Participating high school students will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and talents in competitive academic tests, in addition to experiencing the programs and atmosphere at Chadron State College. Seniors who compete also have the opportunity to receive a one-year tuition scholarship to CSC if they place first in any testing area.

In the past, homeschool students had to register and compete as part of their local public or private school, this year we have decided to allow homeschool students to register and compete as individuals.

The Contest will be held at Chadron State College on April 17, 2020. Registration is open until Friday, March 27, 2020. Visit csc.edu/scholastic for further information about the event, a listing of the testing subject matter and details about each test.

If you wish to register, please email the following information to [email protected] or call me at 308-432-6231:
