Academic Decathlon Essays Are Read
This is the image for the news article titled Academic Decathlon Essays Are ReadIt's that time of year again where our Butte County High Schools participate in the Academic Decathlon.
At 3:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon, myself and three other proctors left the building to travel to school sites to administer the essay portion of the competition. 
Thank you Cyndie Holderbein, Josh Kruse, and Laura Kawasaki performed the honors.
Today, a team of dedicated readers have placed their score on 48 essays, not once, not twice, but three times, to come up with a qualified average representing the essay results of the decathletes.
Thank you Kristy Hemstalk and her team; Kirk Hemstalk, Nic Hoogeven, Rachel Young, Dawn Christensen, Ruth Ann Christensen, Kris Mayhood, and Julie Bruce.  
The remainder of the 2016 Academic Decathlon will take place next Saturday, February 6, 2016 at the Butte County Office of Education. We hope you will join us for the Super Quiz and Awards Ceremony beginning at 1:15 p.m.
