“Students who compete in UIL events devote countless hours preparing for UIL academic competition”, said Dr. David Stevens, UIL director of academics. “Like their athletic counterparts, they practice before, during, and after school and attend invitational meets and competitions. For virtually every school in Texas, it serves as an extension to the regular classroom for highly motivated, intelligent young men and women.”

“In its own way, each contest is intended to teach the thinking skills students will need in college and in their careers,” Steven said. “We have tremendous anecdotal evidence from students who testify to the importance UIL academic contests played in their high school careers. We also know that employers want workers who can solve problems, speak effectively and write clearly. Each contest is designed to help students reach those goals.”
