USAD Announces ALL Events Online

The good news for the 2020-21 Academic Decathlon season is that it can be hosted exclusively online. Tests for the majority of the events are already set up on an online platform and USAD is working diligently to bring Speech and Interview to the online arena as well. They have shared that National will NOT be cancelled this year, but it WILL be virtual. Since Nationals will be virtual – State Competition will also be virtual. More info regarding State will be shared as available.

If you haven’t already ordered your curriculum from usad.org – now’s the time!

Most revisions to this website for the 2020-21 season have been completed. Thank you for your patience and support in this most unusual year. We look forward to seeing you during the September 18 Virtual Coaches/Coordinators meeting and hope that this year’s Virtual Fall Workshop provides support for you and your team as you study this year’s “The Cold War” curriculum.

As always, if you have any questions, please email Michelle at mcrawford@pageinc.org or call 404-414-3041.
