Academic Decathlon!

December 10, 2013
By Cynthia Lara of South Houston High School

Last Thursday and Friday were busy days for our Academic Decathlon students. Thursday marked the the speech and interview portion of the contest. Students prepare a speech no less than 4 minutes long over any school appropriate topic such as government spending, school regulations or social media. Our scholastic student Melanie Orellana came in first place for her emotionally gripping speech. Friday is the test portion of the contest. 10 test 30 minutes each it is a very intense test taking process. The contest finishes off with a super quiz in which all team mates are asked questions in front of the competing schools, all members have 7 seconds to answer each given question. The night ended with Angel Rubio, Diego Medina, Arlen Suarez, Karen Perez, Melanie Orellana, Julia Hernandez taking home a medal and making South Houston High proud.
