On January 25, 2018, the Ambridge Area High School hosted students from across Beaver County for the Academic Games competition.
The competition included events from Greek Mythology and historic events reported in 2017 in the world-wide media, including entertainment, politics, sports, science, technology, space exploration and medicine.
Students from grades 5 – 12 were invited to compete. The event was organized by the Gifted Support team from Ambridge. It takes a team effort, as our High School staff; technology department; food services, along with our custodial and maintenance departments are significant contributors in preparing for this day. Our gratitude is extended to all of these department staff members for their time and effort.
The students planned and prepared for months in advance to retain the plethora of factual information needed to compete.
This year, the gymnasium and the LGI rooms were teeming with students who were ready to qualify in these games. If a student qualifies in two or more Academic Games throughout the school year, they are invited to the National Academic Games. This year, the National Games will be held in Knoxville, Tenn., in April.
We are proud of all the students who attend and hope to see many Ambridge Bridgers in Knoxville!
