DACC to Host Academic Competition
Area Scholars Compete
Danville Area Community College will host the 40th annual Regional Academic Challenge competition, Tuesday, January 30, 2018. Ten area school districts are expected to send representatives to this year’s competition. The event is hosted by the DACC Science, Math, and Health Professions Division and will be held in the Mary Miller Center.
The Academic Challenge is a battery of tests that is created by the Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering Society (WYSE). Participants are tested in seven academic areas including mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, engineering graphics, computer science and English. Winners of the regional competition continue on to the Sectionals held at Eastern Illinois University on March 8, and then may advance to the State Finals at the University of Illinois.
