UIL Academics

UIL DISTRICT CHAMPIONSThe start of the spring semester in most school districts brings with it the increasing focus toward the state testing season, the promise of warmer weather, and the march toward end-of-year activities. In Elysian Fields ISD, there is also a tremendous focus on a program that has brought much success over the years and one on which the Yellow Jackets like to hang their hat every year: UIL Academic competition.

Over the last few years, EFISD has made its mark on spring academic competitions that include subjects such as Cross-Examination Debate, Speech, Journalism, and One-Act Play, among others. The consistency with which EFISD students perform well and win competitions is the result of a commitment from administration, students, and parents to excel in UIL Academic competitions.

Students first compete at the district level for the opportunity to advance to the regional then state levels of competition. Students will compete for individual and team awards within their prospective events, and they also compete against other schools in their classification for an overall meet winner.

In addition, any student who qualifies for the state level of competition qualifies to apply for the Texas Interscholastic League Foundation (TILF) Scholarship.
