Eastern Illinois University
2021 Academic Challenge

The 2021 competitions are all online competitions. Coaches will choose a ninety minute window during which all of their students will complete the two forty minute exams. The niney minute window can be during school hours or outside of school hours at the discretion of the coach. The ninety minute window must fall within the range of dates specified below for each level of the competition.

Regional Competition - February 1 - 6, 2021

Sectional Competition - March 1 - 6, 2021

State Competition - April 5 - 10, 2021

We have spot checked a few school calanders to see if these ranges of dates would work. If there is something general in school calanders of many schools we have missed that will be a problem, please let us know. Also, if it is impossible to schedule the ninety minute interval during those ranges of dates, you will be allowed to request a day prior to those ranges to complete the exams.
