District UIL Champs
From Yantis ISD
Fifth-graders who particpated in the UIL contest.
Yantis Elementary walked away with a trophy for their overall first place finish in their district University Interscholastic League (UIL) competition held December 13th in Fruitvale. Students in grades 2-5 competed both individually, and as teams, in several different academic events. The students came away with 32 medals (first, second or third place finishes) and 21 ribbons (fourth, fifth or sixth place finishes).
The University Interscholastic League was started in 1910, a creation of the University of Texas at Austin. Throughout Texas, schools compete in various academic events against other schools of comparable size. Students that participate in UIL must maintain the eligibility requirements of good behavior and passing grades, but they are also required to put in extra work to prepare for these contests. The students worked really hard in practicing for their events. Several of the students competed in more than one contest. By participating in the UIL academic events, students are able to enrich their education, have experiences that promote leadership and citizenship and foster a sense of pride in their school and their successes, but mostly it’s a lot of fun!!!!
Congratulations, Yantis Elementary!!!!
