Karia was one of 367 students who qualified for nationals, being in the top 0.3 percent in the nation. At Nationals, Karia placed 168th out of 317, putting her in the top 46 percent of the top 0.3 percent in the country.

Three eighth graders also competed at Nationals, including Jared Stumpf, Cavan O'Hara, and Nicholas Weaver. The three students qualified out of approximately 11 million "eligible" United States eighth grade students and were one of 317 National qualifiers (0.3 percent).

Stumpf placed 190th which put him in the top 60 percent of the 0.3 percent of the nation. O'Hara placed 164th which put him in the top 52 percent of the 0.3 percent of the nation, while Weaver placed in the top 15 percent of the 0.3 percent.
