Originally the WRSC planned on having trials after school for the six events they are sponsoring: trivia tournament, art contest, math bee, free throw contest, Jenga contest and spelling bee. The top competitors from each grade would then compete in the finials of the Olympics during the last week of May.
Now all events for the Olympics will be held after school during the last week of May. There will no longer be trials for the events, just finals. At these finals one competitor will be crowned the winner in each event.
On Tuesday May 28th the Trivia contest will be held in the Auditorium and all art work for the art contest should be submitted to the WRSC. On Wednesday May 29th the free throw contest will be held in the Gymnasium and the Math bee will be held in the auditorium. On May 30th the Jenga contest will be held in the Gym and the spelling bee will be in the auditorium. The annual WRSC ice cream social will be held on Friday May 31st, where Olympic champions will be honored. Woodlandstock, where bands and solo artists will preform, will be held after school that day as well.
“By combining trials and finals the Olympics will be much more efficient and faster,” said Senator Mary Vlamis, who is co-running the event with Senator Lindsay Rodorigo.
There are slots still available in some of the Olympic events. If you are still interested in participating in the games stop by the WRSC office located on the second floor next to room 235.
