Section 27 complete results 

The Sixth Grade Showcase, which the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels sponsors, provides a competitive academic opportunity for the state’s sixth graders, who are sometimes “lost” between elementary and middle grades in the Governor’s Cup series. The format includes five written assessments, composition, and quick recall. This fall, groups of schools participated in 39 sections statewide. There is no state-level competition for this event.
