February 5, 2013

Dublin High School Academic Decathlon Team

Dublin High School chalked up another victory last weekend, this time winning first place at the Alameda County Academic Decathlon Regional Competition. The 2-weekend event was held at CSU East Bay and Los Medanos College. Dublin High School will go on to represent Alameda County at the state competition in Sacramento this March.

Dublin High School senior and Academic Decathlon team member Elizabeth Child, “Academic Decathlon is a ten-event academic competition for high school students. There are nine students per team: three ‘A’ students, three ‘B’ students, and three ‘C’ students. Each team member gives a prepared and an impromptu speech, an interview, and writes an essay. In addition to the three objective tests, the team is tested in art, music, social science, mathematics, economics, language and literature. Competition concludes with a final Super Quiz Relay where members are given a series of 12 questions which may be on any combination of subjects.

“It was fantastic to compete for my third year as a part of the Dublin High Academic Decathlon team! We knew that this was going to be our year to pull out all the stops and do the best we could and it definitely paid off. The team won a total of nine individual medals this past year and was named the 2013 Alameda County champions which qualifies us for the state championship in mid-March. As a team we try to represent the academic abilities of Dublin High School as best we can and I believe that everybody is able to see that this year.”

Here are the Dublin High School results from the Academic Decathlon competition:
