High school students in Shelbyville ISD will compete for top honors during the 2018 District 22AA UIL Academic Spring Meet to be held on March 21st at SFA.  The UIL Academic District Meets bring students together to compete in over 22 college level academic contests that cover every aspect of classroom curriculum.  These students meet rigorous scholastic requirements in order to voluntarily compete in UIL academics.  Contestants compete for individual honors while schools compete for the district championship.  Individual winners have an opportunity to advance to the regional competition and the state meet in Austin.  No other program in the nation challenges students with the same rigor as UIL Academics.
