5th Grade Beta Club National Convention Information



Convention dates: June 28-29, 2021


Convention location: Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, Orlando, Florida


The National Beta Club has decided to hold the national convention in a hybrid format. Some competitions will only be offered virtually, and some will be offered in both a virtual format and an in-person format. Students who are competing in competitions offered virtually and in-person will have the option to choose the format in which to compete. However, those who are competing in a group must agree on a format. If for some reason an agreement cannot be made, please contact Mrs. Ardoin so we can attempt to come up with an alternate plan.


Students competing in competitions only offered virtually are still able to attend the national convention.


Quiz Bowl written round will be held virtually. The 8 top scoring teams will compete in the oral round at the national convention (in person). We will not have the results for the written competition until after May 28th. 


Convention details such as schedules, location, hotel information, park ticket information, and COVID safety procedures can be found online at . Please keep in mind that Cooley will fund the registration fees for each competing student and one parent only. All others can register and pay the registration fee on site. Each family will be responsible for their own travel and hotel expense.


** Once we have registered and paid fees for students/parents, anyone unable to attend will be responsible for fee reimbursement.


You should have received a letter that you student brought home to you. Please complete the bottom portion of the letter indicating whether your student will be participating virtually or in person. Please also include any phone number by which you would like to receive GroupMe notifications and updates and return it to Mrs. Ardoin no later that Friday, April 16th.


Please check here regularly for additional information/updates.
