Nine Frisco ISD Academic Decathlon teams will compete at the Texas Academic Decathlon State Competition in Frisco March 8-10 at Collin College.
The AcDec teams each participated in a seven-minute interview, a one-hour essay, two speeches and the infamous Super Quiz where teams competed in a thirteen multiple-choice question relay. Students also participated in a written comprehensive exam on music, art, science, literature, mathematics, economics and social science.
The District AcDec teams competed in the medium schools division against Lewisville, Mesquite, Lovejoy and Corsicana ISDs on their journey to nearly sweeping the top ten spots in the regional competition.
