The Montgomery County Intermediate Unit will again host the Regional Academic Competition to select a single high school team to represent Montgomery County at the Pennsylvania Academic Competition to be held in Harrisburg.  Each school district may send one academic team of six students, with four students competing in each round against other Montgomery County high school students.  Schools determine the criteria for selection of their team; they may send members of an existing academic team from their school.  A school staff member must accompany each team.  Each team competes in two matches and each match consists of two rounds.  Questions will be drawn from Literature, American History, Contemporary Events, World History, Potpourri, and Science and will cover all time periods.  No study syllabus is required.

The purpose of the Pennsylvania Academic Competition is to provide an opportunity for high schools from throughout Pennsylvania to compete academically.  Now in its 21st year, Representative Joseph R. Pitts established the Pennsylvania Academic Competition in 1992.  Each of the 29 Intermediate Units selects one high school team and the winner from the previous year creating 30 participating teams.  An information package, including regional academic competition guidelines, registration form, and MCIU student photographic release forms will be sent to all county high school principals in January.
