They came. They thought. They conquered!

This year's exciting, new "Thinkathon" (formerly known as the "I-Know Contest") was a great success! All the contestants from the three great houses of St. John's Academy - Alexandria, Constantinople and Jerusalem - did a great job answering challenging questions composed by their teachers in each of the subjects in grades four through eight.. Everyone displayed good sportmanship, the parents of the contestants enjoyed seeing how bright their children are, and a good time was had by all.
The winners of the event, students in the Great and Illustrious House of Jerusalem, were awarded prizes consisting of lovely items from the Holy Virgin Cathedral bookstore, as well as house--points toward their contest tally, not to mention a promised ice cream social with the Dean of Students. The second place winner, the Great and Courageous House of Constantinople also received similar prizes from the Cathedral bookstore and house-points, as did the Great and Auspicious House of Alexandria. 

Thinkathon 2011 was a joyous and edifying event. Hopefully, those who were not able to make it this year will not miss next year's Thinkathon 2012  when it comes around again in November.

Final Scores

House of Jerusalen ~ 46 points
House of Alexandria ~ 36 points
House of Constantinople ~ 32 point
