USAD Academic Decathlon Nationals 2023

For Immediate Release
Academic Decathlon® Nationals 2023

United States Academic Decathlon® announces top scoring teams at the 2023 Nationals in Frisco, Texas. Over 450 students from the United States gathered at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas Frisco Hotel & Convention Center, April 27-29 to compete in the 41st annual United States Academic Decathlon® National Competition.

The Academic Decathlon is a 10-event scholastic competition for high school students. There are seven multiple-choice exams including Art, Economics, Literature, Mathematics, Music, Social Science, and Science. The Super QuizTM event tests students on all subjects listed above. Students also write an Essay and are judged in Speech and Interview. Academic Decathlon is very unique in that it is designed to include students from all academic ability and achievement levels. Each nine-member team consists of three “A” (Honor division), three “B” (Scholastic division), and three “C or below” (Varsity division) students. Each team member competes in all 10 events against other students in their individual divisions, and team scores are calculated using the top two individual scores from each division. The curriculum theme for this year was “The American Revolution and the New Nation.”

USAD is very proud of all the students who participated in Nationals; to have made it to Nationals is something to be extremely proud of!
