Academic Decathlon Winners

Angels Camp, CA — On Saturday February 4th, Sixty-nine students competed in the 31st Annual Regional Academic Decathlon Competition. Summerville won for the 10th year in a row.

Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools, Joe Silva says this was the second year for Sonora high school to have a team. There were also students from Bret Harte high school and Mountain Oak high school competing. Silva offered his congratulations to the teams for their participation.

The Summerville team won with 38,622 points. Bret Harte scored 31,850 points and like Summerville will also have the opportunity to participate in the State Competition in Sacramento on March 14 through 17.

According to Calaveras County Superintendent of Schools Kathy Northington, a $5,000 grant from the Teichert Foundation and help from volunteers to judge and organize the event makes it possible to hold this regional competition.

The competition consists of eight, 30 minute multiple choice tests in the subjects of: economics, art, music, language and literature, mathematics, science, and social science. In addition students are awarded points for a planned four minute speech, an impromptu two minute speech, and they have 50 minutes to write an essay. Lastly, the Academic Decathletes must answer questions within seven seconds in the “Super Quiz Oral Relay”. This year’s theme was “Russia”. The questions are the same for competitors across the State, it is not known how the local scores compare to statewide scores yet.

The national competition began in 1982. California won the national title last year and has the past ten years in a row.
