    Southmoore High School's Academic and Scholastic Teams have established a tradition of excellence in our first 8 years.  We are looking forward to another successful year this school year! 

    The Academic Team competitions involve both knowledge and speed.  Questions are posed and the first person to buzz in is given the opportunity to answer.  If they answer incorrectly, the opposing team is given a chance to answer the question.  After a round of 20 questions the teams each complete a lightening round in which they attempt to answer as many questions as possible in just 60 seconds.  These competitions are fast-paced and spirited.  To prepare for these competitions, the academic team practices for 1 hour after school 2 days a week.  Competitions are held after school or on Saturdays.   

    The Scholastic Team competitions take place during the spring semester.  Several universities host these events in which students take tests in various subjects.  Students must be recommended by their teachers in order to compete.  The tests cover a wide range of subjects such as history, art, math, science, literature, computer literacy and foreign languages, to name a few.  Individual students can win medals or certificates and the team as a whole can win trophies.  These events are excellent opportunities for students to visit campuses and learn more about the programs offered at these universities.  In the past we have competed at Cameron University in Lawton, USAO in Chickasha, ECU in Ada and SWOSU in Weatherford.
