OROVILLE-CA The Butte County Academic Decathlon will take place at the Butte County Office of Education on February 3, 2018 from (7:30am – 4:00pm).

The annual theme this year is “Africa”. A total of four high schools are scheduled to compete: Oroville Union High School, Las Plumas High School, Paradise High School, and Inspire School of Arts & Sciences. These teams are competing for an opportunity to advance to the California State competition March 22-24 in Sacramento and represent Butte County.

The Butte County Academic Decathlon, held the first Saturday in February of each year, is an academic competition open to high school students from all school districts in Butte County. This year we have 53 high school students, 30+ judges and proctors, and many volunteers who work behind the scenes.

The Academic Decathlon is a team competition in academics for high school students in grades nine through twelve. Academic Decathletes compete in teams of six to nine students and involves students of all levels of academic achievement, to ensure that the program is inclusive of students of varying ability levels. Students will take a series of tests in the subjects of language & literature, math, art, music, science, social science, essay, speech, interview and economics. The competition ends with an oral Super Quiz, a fast-paced question and answer relay.

We hope you will be able to join us throughout the day to support the students in their academic endeavors. Attached is a draft schedule for competition day (subject to changes).
