The St. Joseph the Worker Academic Junior High Decathlon Team is BACK!
Here are some basic facts about the decathlon:
This is a competition for students in grades 6 through 8.
- There are ten events:
- Two are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems, and a super quiz with 50 multiple choice questions on five broad academic themes.
- The remaining eight events test individual knowledge of:
- Roman Catholic doctrine
- Current Events
- Social Studies
- Fine Arts (Art and Music).
Awards are given for individual and team performance, and the winning school team from each geographic diocese competes in a national championship, usually held in April.
