A+ Academic Events

A+ Academics Guides for Meet Directors

These instructions have been developed to assist contest directors of UIL elementary and junior high events. Additional events will be added in the near future as they are completed.

TEKS and College Readiness

To demonstrate how directly UIL academic activities complement the Texas curriculum, our contests have been correlated to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, the Advanced Placement Program, and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program. In addition, UIL academic competitors excel scholastically statewide because the events enhance academic learning in the classroom. In short, academic competition both matches and supplements the TEKS.
