The Academic Challenge event is a high school competition that was created and conducted annually by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Engineering WYSE Outreach Program for about 40 years. Beginning in 2024, the School of Extended Learning at Eastern Illinois University oversees the competition with the assistance of many partner institutions throughout Illinois and Missouri.
We are aware of an issue with the coach site that is causing some roster pages to display the incorrect school name. We are working to fix the issue and hope to have it resolved soon. In the meantime, please double-check that your roster page has the correct school name. At this time, we believe the issue is impacting schools with new coaches for which we have generated new login credentials. If your roster page is displaying the incorrect school name, please wait until it is fixed before submitting your student roster. Because of this issue, we are extending the initial deadline for coaches to register students. The new deadline is December 15, 2023.
Please note that we are still making updates to the website for 2024. Thank you for your patience!
