Wissahickon High School students showed off their brain power in a close win at the annual Pennsylvania State Academic Competition regional event sponsored by the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU) on March 29th. The team was victorious in the final match against Upper Dublin High School and Mt. St. Joseph Academy, answering difficult questions about literature, American history, contemporary events, world history, potpourri, and science.
“All teams are to be congratulated for their obvious depth of knowledge and awareness of current events. We wish Wissahickon good luck at the state competition,” said Kendall Glouner, MCIU Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development. “MCIU enjoys hosting the event each year to promote excellence and develop the leadership skills of our best and brightest students.”
On May 4, the winning regional teams from all over the state will compete in the Pennsylvania State Academic Competition at the state Capital in Harrisburg. Each of the 29 intermediate units in Pennsylvania is permitted to send one high school academic team to participate in the competition. The winning team will receive a $2,000 scholarship for their high school and will have the opportunity to participate in the Panasonic Academic Challenge at Disney World in June.
