Information needed on Academic Competition Conferences
Early last spring I conducted a survey of Academic Coaches in the state of Indiana, and asked about competition conferences in which schools participated. I received responses that ranged from coaches having never heard of conference competition in academics to schools participating in combination academic/athletic conferences where the academic teams participated and received equal recognition with the athletic competitions. We had some teams who participated in academic competition leagues that had no correspondence with athletic conferences at all, and teams who competed in more than one conference depending on the type of team. So, academic competitions are definitely alive and well in the state of Indiana.
73 of 92 counties in Indiana reported their participation in Academic Competition Conferences. Since we have participation in our IASP competitions from all 92 counties, I am wondering if I am still missing information about those 19 counties or if there really are no academic conferences there.
If you are a coach who participates in an academic conference in one of the following counties in Indiana, please email jSlinker @iasp.org. I would like to finish creating a comprehensive list of all academic competition leagues in the state.
I am missing Information on these counties:
Adams Allen Benton Blackford
Dearborn Fountain Franklin Greene
Huntington Martin Ohio Parke
Ripley Sullivan Switzerland Vanderburgh
Wabash Warren Wells
