State Competition Registration Packet

Forms to be used by district-level champions and Wild Card teams when registering for state competition will be listed below as we get closer to State Competition. 


Essay Testing at State Competition

The Essay practice login and actual writing take place two or three weeks prior to competition (this year Jan 29 & 30 for the login and Jan 31 & Feb 1 for the writing).


Below are instructions and other forms necessary for a successful essay competition. The GAD Online Essay Competition Overview PowerPoint can be used to show students how to navigate through the software they will have to use to write their essay. Logins and passwords will be sent to coaches.


The Coach CAN NOT Proctor the Essay Competition. The Coach may assist with the practice login and should be present as the students are arriving and logging in on competition day but must LEAVE the Essay location prior to testing. The Coach should be available to the Proctor in case of  any questions and to sign the Reporting Form.

State Competition Schedules

The 2018 documents will be posted approximately two weeks prior to State Competition. The official 2017 competition documents are available below as a sample. 

The official 2018 information will also be included in the State Competition Handbook which you will receive when you check in at competition.

Division Assignments

All schools advancing to state competition will be divided into two groups based on school enrollment: Division I (large), and Division II (small). The division assignments may vary from year to year based on a natural break between the teams advancing to state competition in any given year.

Following all competitive events at state competition, a championship team in each division will be identified. The division champion will be determined as the one with the highest total score for all ten events. The two team members having the highest score in each category (Honor, Scholastic, Varsity) will be counted into the team's total score for all ten events.

The overall championship team is the division winner with the highest team score. This team will be crowned the State Champion and be the recipient of the Howard Stroud trophy. They will earn the privilege of representing Georgia at the USAD National Finals.

Schools advancing to national competition will be divided into three divisions known as Division I (large), Division II (medium), and Division III (small).
