Bonner Springs High School will be hosting the Academic Decathlon regional scrimmage this Saturday, Nov 2. 

The teams will be competing in 10 categories: science, literature, art, music, social science, economics, mathematics, essay interview, speech, and Super Quiz.

The theme this year is “in sickness and in health,” so students will learn as much as they can on the subject and will be tested on their knowledge. This is the first time that Bonner Springs has hosted an Academic Decathlon event.

Sponsor Allen Holder, an English teacher, said he wasn’t sure how many teams would be competing.

“Whenever you have something like this, you really don’t know what to expect until it’s here,” said Holder, who volunteered to host the event.
