Each year the ESC oversees Academic Competitions, using the Ohio Academic Competition format. The purpose of this competition is to encourage higher-order thinking, recognize outstanding achievement, and promote academic excellence among participating high school students. Approximately 150-180 students participate in Academic Competitions, held weekly from September through December at the ESC.
For the 2023-24 league season teams may bring up to 12 students for competition (and up to 8 students for tournament). Competition rules and updates will be provided to coaches at the end of August.
