Sixth Grade Showcase held at Lynn Camp Elementary

Knox County’s brightest sixth graders were on showcase on Saturday, December 2, during the annual Sixth Grade Showcase.

The Sixth Grade Showcase is an academic event designed to provide a competitive opportunity for Kentucky’s sixth graders, who are sometimes “lost” between elementary (4-5) and middle grades (6-8) Governor’s Cup competition.   Much like Governor’s Cup, the competition includes five written assessments-Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Arts/Humanities,  a Quick Recall event, and composition.

Jennifer Carey, the district’s gifted and talented coordinator, leads the event each year.  “It is a chance for coaches, administrators, parents and community to see the rewards gained from encouraging academic performance through properly structured and professionally administered academic competition.”
