Academic Super Bowl

Indiana Academic Super Bowl

Through this Hoosier contest, founded in 1987, teams of students enhance their research and study skills by delving into topics which change annually, taking them beyond what is usually covered in the classroom. There are two levels of competition, Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12). Subject area rounds include English, math, science, social studies, interdisciplinary, and a fine arts round (senior division only).
