    2020 Regional Academic Competition 

    The Carbon Lehigh Intermediate Unit #21 will host the 2020 Regional Academic Competition on Friday, April 3rd, 2020. The Regional Academic Competition features high schools from Carbon and Lehigh Counties competing against one another in a contest of knowledge. Students, in teams of four, answer a series of questions in a college-bowl format. During each round, students answer a series of toss-up questions where they have to "buzz in" first to answer, and a set of fanfare questions in which each team has 60 seconds to answer 6 questions. Students are quizzed on their knowledge of literature, math, science, American and world history, geography, the fine arts and current events.

    Academic Competition Rules

    This event is part of the statewide 2020 PA Academic Competition, with regional winners moving on to compete at the Pennsylvania State Capitol Building in Harrisburg, PA, with the state champion team to receive a scholarship for their high school.
