Students whose parents invest time in helping them to prepare are the ones most likely to succeed at PSIA. For students who compete as part of our school team, we require that one parent per household fulfill a volunteer shift on the day of the PSIA meet. Volunteers serve as graders, assistant directors for contests, and general helpers to make the day go smoothly for all involved. Events will run in individual classrooms throughout the school during the day, with awards given in individual classrooms instead of at one ceremony. Because your volunteer shift may occur at the same time as one of your children’s events, we strongly suggest that you bring two adults to the meet if you wish to be present when your child receives an award for a specific event. PSIA guidelines require at least one parent or guardian be present on the day of the event for each competing child (or family, if more than one child from your household joins our school team).
In general, three students per grade level may compete in an event. For some events, there is a limit of three students per combined grade levels; visit our website for more specifics about events.
Students who rank first or second for their grade levels will be invited to represent the school at the PSIA State Meet at Texas Christian University. PSIA also offers scholarships to eighth graders who have participated in their events for successive years and were awarded gold medals at the state level in one or more events.
Competitions offered by Grade Level
In general, three students per grade level may compete in an event. For some events, there is a limit of three students per combined grade levels. Visit the PSIA website for a schedule of when events take place during the meet.
