The students heading to the Academic Olympics are all Juniors. Hopefully their minds will still be fresh following the competition because they will all be taking the ACT test the very next day. If they score a 24 or better on their ACTs, they qualify for a $6,000 scholarship courtesy of the state of North Dakota.
