    What ages/grades is your club for? This is a county-wide competition open to all 5th grade students.

    How does someone join your club?  Students have to pass a test to be on the team.  The team is selected based on teacher referral and a general knowledge quiz. 

    When is your club offered?  We compete with other schools in the fall. Team members must be able to attend lunch practices during the season. 

    What is your club about? Academic Derby is a Trivia Challenge Team.  It is made up of 8-12 members who have a passion for studying general knowledge and a talent for memorizing facts.  It is a televised competition that consists of three rounds of questions.  U.S. History, Geography, Literature, Spelling, Science, Sports, and Grammar are the major question categories.  Students interested in Academic Derby must be comfortable in front of a camera, quick to buzz in and willing to study and prepare for matches.  All team members will receive a team shirt and our final match will be celebrated at a restaurant of our choice!
