The annual Academic Challenge gives children in grades 2-5 an opportunity to compete in rigorous contests that promote the pursuit of knowledge as a worthy endeavor. All interested students may participate; watch for sign-ups at school.
In competition, the students work in teams to answer questions in various subject areas. They scrimmage against other schools and then square off in regional tournaments. Youngsters receive trophies, medals, and participation certificates, and the sponsoring colleges award scholarship offers after the Superintendent's Cup finale in the spring.
