Academic Challenge II

  • 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 hope to resume in-person competition among elementary school teams in 2022-23. For questions, please check with your school's coordinator.
