The Academic Decathlon is a student competition in which ninth through twelfth grade high school students compete as individuals and as team members in a series of 10 academic tests and demonstrations. Students take seven 30-minute multiple choice tests in the subjects of Art, Economics, Music, Language & Literature, Mathematics, Science, and Social Science. Students will also have 50 minutes to write an essay on one of three given prompts. In addition to the tests and essay, each student will give two speeches and participate in a 7-minute interview. "The Academic Decathlon embodies a partnership of business, foundations and individuals in cooperation with the education community and county offices of education." (California Academic Decathlon)
