During the contest, teams of students compete in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning, typical of secondary educational programs. Questions test students’ recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. This competition provides a format for student growth centered around academics. Teams consist of five students (five competing in the written round and four competing in each oral round).
