• Academic Challenge is an Urban League of Lexington initiative in partnership with Fayette County Public Schools and Kentucky colleges awarding scholarships. Students in grades 3, 4, and 5 from our participating Title I elementary schools can flex their academic muscles through on-demand writing, math/science prompts, and quiz bowl competition. 

    We are excited about the 2023 season! If you have questions, please check with your school's coach or email Sharon Mofield-Boswell at the district office.
