March 7, 2016 - High school students in Shelbyville ISD will compete for top honors during the 2016 District 22AA UIL Academic Spring Meet to be held on March 23rd at SFA. The UIL Academic District Meets bring students together to compete in over 22 college level academic contests that cover every aspect of classroom curriculum. These students meet rigorous scholastic requirements in order to voluntarily compete in UIL academics.
