Knox County’s sixth-grade students took part in the 16th annual Kentucky Colonels’ Sixth Grade Academic Showcase which was hosted locally by G.R. Hampton Elementary School on December 1, 2018.
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. The competition mirrors that of Governor’s Cup with written assessment events in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts and Arts/Humanities, and a double elimination Quick Recall tournament.
The Honorable Order of the Kentucky Colonels, the event sponsor, is made up of Kentucky Colonels from around the world, and is dedicated to perpetuating the good works of individual
members on a collective basis.
