Joan Edinger, the associate director of admissions at Louisiana Tech said due to problems with testing materials for Agriscience II and Agriscience III, all of the students who took these two tests are automatically eligible to compete at the state rally.
Approximately 1,600 students from 18 North La. parishes competed. Schools also competed for the sweepstakes award in each division. Testing in 49 subjects is separated in five divisions, based on the school's size.
“The North Louisiana Rally allows individual students an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities and to test themselves against their peers,” Edinger said. “Louisiana Tech is honored and delighted to have part in this program.”
Last week, Edinger released the names of students who qualified for State Rally or who won first through fifth place in a subject that has only district competition. The State Rally is scheduled for April 20 on the campus of Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge.
