MONTGOMERY COUNTY INTERMEDIATE UNIT
2014 REGIONAL ACADEMIC COMPETITION
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
