HomeworkSpot > U.S. Academic Decathlon Winners



U.S. Academic Decathlon Winners

Founded in 1981, the U.S. Academic Decathlon (USAD) is a competition in which teams of students are quizzed in ten categories: art, economics, essay, interview, language and literature, mathematics, music, science social science and speech. Each year, there is a different theme (the 2010-2011 competition theme, for example, was "The Great Depression"). Teams have nine students with a mix of achievement levels. Three must be "A" or Honor students, three must be "B" or Scholastic students, and three must be "C" or Varsity students. You can check here for the qualifications. All team members compete individually in the ten categories for separate medals. In scoring teams, only the top two scores from each student category are used. There are local, regional, state and national levels of the Decathlon.

The Materials link lets you find resource material for sale, like study guides, resource guides and online testing. You can also see in this section which topics the USAD will cover for each category in relation to the theme, and, for more specific information contestants need to know for each, click the subject.
