2005 JHS Competition Questions- Please Use for Coaching!
« on: June 15, 2006, 09:33:20 PM »
Hello Everyone-

To aid all those coaching students for the competition,  I have posted the questions from the 2005 English Contest.  No questions from last year will be repeated this year though categories may.  The Competition will be 5 Rounds.  Each Round will have categories with 5 questions per category.  Rounds One and Two will have questions worth 100-500 points.  The Quarter Finals onward will have questions worth 200-1000 points.  There will also be one final question per round.  Students can wager some, all, or none of their points on the final question.  Please teach your students how to wager!  I hope this provides you with a better understanding of the competition.
