Daily Log of
Changes to State-Qualifier List
After Houstonfest, some schools and individuals
opt not to attend State for various reasons, although this
should be rare in 2021 with contests being online. When this happens, the name
of each entry that will not attend State is dropped from the state-qualifier
list, and the next entry (from places 6-10) moves up. These changes are
reflected in the
results spreadsheet, but for the convenience of teachers who
are watching for changes that affect their students, this page will also contain
a log of the changes made each day.
Drop J. Smith (School) from Event, move up
When is the next Houstonfest?
