• Academic Challenge is an Urban League of Lexington initiative in partnership with Fayette County Public Schools and participating colleges.

    In spring 2022, we invited students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 8 at participating Title I schools to flex their academic muscles through on-demand writing or math/science prompts. Volunteers scored their work and chose six winners per grade for a college scholarship.

    We are excited about the upcoming competition in 2023, and we plan to release details before winter break. If you have questions, please email Sharon Mofield-Boswell
