The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational

Saturday, November 20, 2021


The James S. Rickards Fall Invitational is one of the largest competitions in the Southeast, generally with over 1,000 competitors from over 45 elementary, middle, and high schools. This year the Invitational will be held in-person on Saturday, November 20th, 2021.

Due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19, we will be making some adjustments to the competition format to reduce potential risks. Team rounds will be replaced with individual open rounds for elementary- and middle-school competitors, and we will do our best to keep competitors as socially distanced as possible throughout the event. Additionally, to limit crowding in the auditorium, we have decided against holding an in-person award ceremony this year; instead, the award ceremony will be livestreamed soon after the day of the competition.

Please read the Competition Handbook pertaining to your level, included below, for further details on the updated format.
