We are very excited that RRISD is offering UIL A+ Academic Competition at the elementary level again this year. Students in second through fifth grades are invited to participate in one or two events. The division meet will be on Saturday, January 27, 2018, and students who perform well at the division meet will go on to participate in the district meet on Saturday, March 3rd. Times will vary for specific events and more information will be coming closer to the competition dates. All practice sessions will begin on their specific days starting the week of October 30th. Students will practice for 6 weeks to prepare them for our Divisional Competition Meet.

Each event is available to a limited number of students, and a smaller team that will compete at the meet will be selected in December. All students will be expected to study and practice for their event at home.
