Thirty teams from across the region will compete Jan. 19 and 20 at the 2018 Regional Academic Decathlon hosted at Warren High School.
The Academic Decathlon promotes student achievement by providing a format in which high school students compete in various academic areas. In addition to a seven-minute interview, a one-hour essay and two speeches, written comprehensive exams are given in music, art, language/literature, mathematics, economics, (social) science, and the Super Quiz. This year’s topic is “Africa.”
Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded for individual and total scores.
Teams advancing from region competition will compete at the Texas Academic Decathlon in late February. The state meet will be held at San Antonio College in late February.
