Grade-level participation question and FAQ

Q: Can a second-grade student participate in a fourth- or fifth-grade event?

A: Yes. However, we don’t encourage this kind of grade jump. There are many aspects of WESO events that are intended to be grade-specific, such as language/wording, complexity, pace of events, and so on. Event supervisors will conduct each event on the grade level for which it is designed, and will not be able to provide special help or consideration to students in lower grades who may be participating.
