FAIRFIELD — Volunteers are needed to help with the North Bay Region Academic Decathlon scheduled Jan. 12, 2013, and Feb. 2, 2013, at Rodriguez High School.
The North Bay Region Academic Decathlon includes high schools from Solano, Napa, Sonoma and Yolo counties. More than 200 high school students are expected to attend.
The decathlon is a competitive event modeled after the Olympics to stimulate academic achievement and honor “athletes of the mind.” It consists of 10 events, including tests in art, music, language and literature, mathematics, economics, science and social science. There are also communication tests that include writing an essay, delivering a prepared and an impromptu speech, and an interview.
For more information, contact Ken Scarberry of the Solano County Office of Education at 646-7603 or [email protected]
