    This is the time of year where we begin recruiting students who would like to enter the UIL Contest.  UIL stands for University Interscholastic League, an organization that governs all athletic and academic contests in the state of Texas.  UIL academic programs are designed to support basic curriculum and allow the students to apply what they learn in the classroom.  Students do this by selecting a contest to enter, there is a  tryout selection period,  if chosen they will spend a couple of months practicing the concepts before, after or during school under supervision of a coach, and then compete at the district-wide contest. 

     

    The UIL contests are as follows:

    The Allen ISD Elementary UIL Academic Contest will be held on Saturday, January 7, 2017 at Allen High School.  The contests have staggered starting times and specific times will be given at a later date.  For general time purposes, the first contests begin at 8:30 and the last one ends around 12:00.

    ·         Students may enter: writing contests: (creative or ready writing) and then another contest, but note they will have 2 contest days to practice with their coaches.  Your child will need to make sure they do not meet on the same day after school or during school hours and will need to show up for each practice.

     

    Example: 2nd  grader- Creative Writing and  Storytelling

                Example: 3rd grader- Ready Writing and Spelling

                Example: 5th grader- Ready Writing and Number Sense
