Extemporé State Competition

Five teams from Rich Hill Elementary competed in the state Extemporé Competition on Saturday, May 5th at Brittany Hills Middle School in Blue Springs.  Extemporé is an academic competition that combines risk-taking, creativity, communication, problem solving and teamwork to solve extemporaneous challenges in a competitive setting.  One hundred eleven teams from around the state took part in the competition.

The curriculum for this year’s competition concentrated on information and events from the 1950’s.


6th grade team – Kadyn Coonce, Rileigh Wolf, Kyla Couzens,

Team Pogo:  Raed Rebman, Jaritt Fry, Cooper Gillis, and Joshua Covey  “Outstanding Award” for an AHA competition.  Judge’s comment was “they blew the other teams out of the water.”

When students had a bit of free time they had the opportunity to participate in a game called “Hulabaloo” (Tic, Tac, Toe with some running involved)


Another activity for free moments was a hula hooping contest.  The winner went for more than 20 minutes.   Rich Hill didn’t have a winner in this contest!
