WHAT IS ACADEMIC DECATHLON:
Academic Decathlon is one of the most prestigious academic competitions in the state of Massachusetts. Academic Decathlon focuses on a single theme and requires wide ranging and in depth knowledge about that theme from every member of the team. This year’s theme the 1960s. Throughout the year we will focus on the art, economics, language, literature, math, music, and social sciences of the theme. Every member of the Milford High School’s Academic Decathlon team will be assessed on their knowledge of The 1960’s at the Round 1 meet. Round 1 will be on November 17. Those who do well will advance to Regionals which will be held at Milford High School on February 2nd. This meet will consists of a seven minute interview, a one hour essay, a four minute prepared speech, a two minute impromptu speech, written comprehensive exams (in art, economics, language, literature, math, music, and social science), and the super quiz! The State competition will be on March 2nd.
