First, second and third place medalists and first place teammembers will compete at the 2021 Region III-AA Academic Regional Spring Meet at Panola College on April 16th and 17th.


Shelbyville Academic UIL coaches who will be attending the regional meet are:  

Brooke Harrison (Science), Cole Harrison (Number Sense), Crystal Harrison (Mathematics), Megan Holt (Accounting, Computer Science), Dominique Roland (Literary Criticism), Mario Osby (Computer Applications), Emily Sowell (Informative Speaking, Persuasive Speaking, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Current Issues & Events), Jeane Taylor (Poetry Interpretation), and Claire Windham (Feature Writing, Headline Writing, Ready Writing).


“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.”  


The UIL schedules a greater variety of contests, holds larger meets, and provides services to more students than any similar program in the nation.  The UIL offers contests in 23 academic events, including Cross-Examination Debate.  “In its own way, each contest is intended to teach the thinking skills students will need in college and in their careers,” Stevens 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.”
