How to Join

Rally support from your school community

Print out our PSIA Brochure Brief and distribute it among teachers, students, parents, and volunteers. Direct all interested parties to this web site for more information. Generate as much interest as you can. The more people who participate, the more successful and exciting the tournament becomes.

PSIA contests span all levels from Grade 1 to Grade 8 —and are open to home schoolers, too!— so everyone has an opportunity to take part.

Register your school

Complete and mail the 2017-2018 2017-18 Membership Form. The deadline for registration is provided in the News area of this site.

Once you register, the Executive Director assigns your school to a District (and a One-Act Play Area) according to the school’s size and location, and sends PSIA materials to you. The appropriate District Director also makes contact. Teachers, parents, coaches, and others may attend 17 Workshop Registration Form  to receive important information regarding contest preparation; “Intro to PSIA” sessions precede each workshop.

Check the Districts & Areas pages for schools in your vicinity against whom you can expect to compete. (Note that the District lists are subject to change, and that the Executive Director may create new Districts as needed.)

Be advised:

Each school must provide adults to serve at District and State Meets as Event Directors, Graders or Judges, or Assistants. (Well in advance of a Meet, District and State Directors announce specific positions to fill.) Plan to send enough adults or high school students to fill ONE position for every 2.25 student participants.

Invite other schools to join, too!

Does your school have a cross-town rival? Challenge their students to battle yours on the field of academic honor. Contact local schools and home schools in your area to participate in intramural, as well as your district meet.
