UIL Academics

UIL Information

UIL at the high school level allows students the opportunity to compete in various events from many subjects. Some of them continue from junior high events, some fade into oblivion, and some new events become available. The key difference at the high school level is students get to continue demonstrating their knowledge and/or skills past the district level; they can then compete at regional and state levels and, as a result, qualify for scholarships!
