The TRiO program as administered by the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit 5 has two separate divisions: Talent Search and Upward Bound Math and Science. TRiO is a federal outreach and student service program designed to help low income and first generation students see the benefits and possibilities of a post-secondary education. The program through mentoring, career exploration, college visits, and guidance and direction in the application and financial aid process, helps students enroll and be successful in obtaining a post-secondary education.

Students in grades 4 through 8 compete in the Regional 24 Challenge® Math Tournament, using the popular 24 game. Top 3 winners from each division will be eligible for the State Championship held in Harrisburg in June. We encourage schools to have competitions at the school level as only 4 students per division per school can attend the Regional Tournament. For more information email: studentprograms@iu5.org
