Another Frequently Unasked Interrogative

May 6, 2009

How is it fair that a school might become Scholastic World Champion of Sprouts without competition?

It canít happen. In order for a school to win WGOSA recognition as Scholastic World Champion of Sprouts for a particular school year, a faculty member of that school must make application by a set cut off date. Having a student or faculty member savvy enough even to know about esoteric awards in an obscure but intellectually vibrant realm of mathematical gaming would be already a mark of achievement. Applying by an announced date is itself a competition. If only one school in the entire world were to clear that hurdle, then that school would have fairly won the conferred title through competition, even though without further competition.
