Sessions will include discussions on contest preparation, demonstrations, performances and contest administration. Students may choose from novice and advanced sessions in some academic areas, as well as small-group sessions in specific UIL activities.”
The site has also posted a tentative schedule.
Any student interested in competing are welcome to go. The cost is free and transportation by bus is taken care of. Permission forms for the trip are due Tuesday, Sept, 25.
