The Academic Challenge event is a high school competition that was created and conducted annually by the Univerity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Engineering WYSE Outreach Program for about 40 years. Although the operation of the competition has been discontiued by UIUC, Eastern Illinois University will be continuing to run the competition with the assistance of many other institutions throughout Illinois and Missouri.
Information about the 2022 Competition: The 2022 Academic Challenge Competition will be held. It appears at this time, it may be a mixture of in-person and online competitions. Hosts for in-person competitions are now exploring the possibilities for their institution hosting the competitions. Many institutions are reserving large meeting spaces in case there will be need for them to accommodate social distancing for class meetings, so there will not be space available for the Academic Challenge. I will update the schedule as soon as I hear back from the hosts.
