Academic competitions can be a fun way of enriching a student's educational experience. They facilitate learning, offer a social outlet, build self-esteem, teach many non-academic skills such as public speaking, presentation and organization, build school spirit, often award prizes (sometimes even scholarships), and look good on college applications. There are academic competitions for every age and interest such as Academic UIL, Mock Trial, MathCounts, Chess, etc.
