Welcome to the Academic Decathlon® Individual Competition!
An Opportunity to be Invited to Nationals in Wisconsin
Participants of the Online Individual Competition have an opportunity to be invited to the USAD® National Competition in Madison, WI, April 20 – 22, 2017. The number of students to be considered is dependent on the number of slots available. A team of USAD® staff and select State Directors will determine the individuals invited using a round robin method based on the student's category, round III score and state.
Students will need to register for round IV of the USAD® Individual Competition if they have not participated in previous rounds of the Individual Competition. In addition, they need to complete the registration process.
Registraion Deadlines: The registration deadline is based on the date of the student's state competition. For registration deadlines, visit Individual Registration.
Important note: The students who are members of teams invited to represent their state in the USAD Large, Medium or Small Online National Competitions are not allowed to disband their team and compete as individuals.
