In two days, 35 city students will grab their pencils and put their knowledge to the test.

The annual Child Welfare Club’s Eddy Test will be held Tuesday. The organization describes the test as a "scholastic achievement test for selected Ironton Middle and St. Lawrence schools."

To qualify for the test, students at the two city schools must do well on the Ohio Off-Grade Proficiency Tests. Standard scores in reading, math, citizenship, and science were totaled and ranked at the test’s completion. For St. Lawrence students, the composite scores from any nationally recognized standardized test that measures scores in all core classes is used to determine eligibility.

The top 25 percent of sixth-grade students as of the end of the first semester from both schools are eligible for the testing.

Students in the top one-third of all Eddy Test participants will receive an Eddy Award at a banquet later this year.

This year’s test participants include:
