Cameron University's Office of Adult and Continuing Education will host the university's 31st Annual Interscholastics Contest on Friday, April 3, with approximately 800 students from more than 20 Oklahoma high schools slated to participate. Students will represent their respective schools and will also compete for individual awards. Sweepstakes awards in the school competition will be given in two divisions: Type I, for Class 5A and 4A schools, and Type II, for Class 3A, 2A, A and B schools, as classified by the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Assn.
"Cameron's Interscholastics Contest is a longstanding tradition," says Lorie Garrison, contest coordinator. "Students who participate test their knowledge by completing college level exams in more than 50 subjects, including English, Business Law, Trigonometry, Economics, Music Theory and many more. The tests cover a wide-range of arts and sciences disciplines."
The 2008 Interscholastics champions, Eisenhower High School in Lawton and Elgin High School, will return to defend their titles against students from Alex, Altus, Apache, Big Pasture High School in Randlett, Cache, Cement, Chattanooga, Comanche, Cyril, Fletcher, Fort Cobb-Broxton, Granite, Lawton Christian Academy, Lindsay, Southmoore High School in Moore, Pauls Valley, Snyder, Walters, Waurika and Westmoore High School in Moore.
