Middle School Academic Rally
Learn how middle school students can compete at SPX
Over two days in February, the St. Pius X High School Middle School Academic Rally (MSAR), sponsored by the Del Sarto Chapter of the National Honor Society, showcased the talents of students in competitions. This year's main rally event will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019, with pre-rally competitions on Friday, February 8, 2019.
The rally involved more than 700 entrants and was produced by the SPX National Honor Society students working under the president/student director as they do each year.
Open to sixth, seventh and eighth graders throughout the greater Houston area, MSAR participants may compete in oral competition in:
- foreign language
- on-site drawing
- pre-submitted creative writing and art
- academic tests in various disciplines
The annual rally culminated with the Significa! Tournament in which teams competed for their middle schools. Students and their schools earned medals and awards, gained competitive experience and met talented scholars from many other schools.
