More than 180 high school students from 17 Rhode Island schools will compete in the 30th annual R.I. Academic Decathlon this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Community College of Rhode Island Knight Campus in Warwick.
All four Warwick high schools are competing in the event.
Students will vie to best each other in 10 subjects (language & literature, art, music, social science, economics, mathematics, science, essay, interview, and speech). Each year, a different subject is chosen for the Super Quiz, and this year’s topic is Russia. The Super Quiz will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Bobby Hackett Auditorium.
The hour-long awards ceremony will begin at the conclusion of the Super Quiz, at approximately 5 p.m. The victors will represent Rhode Island in the national competition, which will be held April 25-27 in Minneapolis, Minn.
