“With more than 3,000 elementary, middle and junior high schools across the state participating in UIL academic competition, teachers encourage students to sample a variety of activities rather than become specialists in one,” said Lisa Parker, UIL Assistant Academic Director. “UIL designs the contests to provide the foundation for skills and experience the students need. Participation in UIL activities is designed to enrich the individual’s learning experience. All contests are created with curricular objectives in mind.”
