Emerson S. competed in the Texas National Geographic State Bee and the PSIA One-Act Play Meet.Students at Trinity Episcopal School have been flexing their academic and artistic prowess during March, competing in the PSIA Texas Regionals, the Texas National Geographic State Bee, and the PSIA One-Act Play Meet.

Results for the PSIA academic competition are in the record books, and Trinity students performed very well. Four lower schoolers and 11 middle schoolers qualified for the first round of the PSIA state competition. The event included competitions in various subjects, including math, science, creative writing, music, drawing, and more. The PSIA State Meet will be held at Texas Christian University on April 29.

In addition to academics, Trinity competed in the arts as well. The PSIA One-Act Play Meet was held on March 31, and Trinity students performed the Shakespeare classic Hamlet. Results of the competition will be announced in the coming weeks.

Among those students competing in the PSIA One-Act Meet was Emerson S. (pictured here), who also competed in the Texas National Geographic State Bee on the same day.

Private Schools Interscholastic Association, or PSIA, provides an opportunity for private school students in grades 1 through 8 to engage in academic competition with their peers throughout Texas, with 19 contest categories covering a wide range of disciplines in 59 academic contests. 

The Texas National Geographic State Bee is a challenging test of geographic knowledge designed to encourage teachers, spark student interest, and increase public awareness about geography. Students in grades 4 through 8 are eligible.

Congratulations to all of the students who competed during March!
