Countdown to Academic Decathlon

January 10, 2019

The 12 students who make up ER's Academic Decathlon team are in the final weeks of preparation for their competition. They've been at it since late summer, and Saturday Jan. 26th is the big day. Around fifty Los Angeles County high schools are expected to attend the competition, which includes 10 separate academic events. Half the events will be Jan 26, and the other half—including the Super Quiz—will be the next Saturday, Feb. 2.

Each year the organizers choose a topic, which this year is the 1960's.
