The Academic All Stars program provides a competition program for top high school students in area schools
The Academic All Star season got underway this evening with “in person” competition. After last season’s matches taking place on Zoom, it was a welcome change to be face to face with the competing schools, coaches, and moderators.
Coordinator Mary Harris of Alfred NY, explains the event that she has helped produce for students over the last of thirty years:
“It’s a Jeopardy style competition amount the high schools in the GST BOCES area and great fun for the kids. I’ve been involved since the early 1990’s as a moderator (Alex Trebec-type job.)”
Results of the evening’s matches are as follows:
