Last year, the 2018 Hendry County team (pictured below) took the Division 3 championship titlefor the entire state of Florida. This was the first time in history that the team has won this title!We are so thrilled and cannot wait to attend the competition again this year to defend our title.
Academic Team is an organization that facilitates Clewiston's best and brightest to showcase
their academic prowess against other teams from around the state. This is not a quick
response, "Trivial Pursuit" contest. Instead, it is a slower-paced tournament in which players are
asked questions from the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the fine
arts, world languages (French and Spanish) physical education, health, and technology. In this
club, they often find a place in which they can collaborate with others at their level, as well and
foster lasting friendships and earning plentiful scholarships from competing and winning
competitions. The main goal of CHS Academic Team is to be good enough to place for the
prestigious Hendry County team, which competes at the Commissioner's Academic Challenge at
Walt Disney World annually, against the best of the rest of the state of Florida. If you feel that
this is a good fit for you, stop on by and check us out!
Mission: A fun team environment where players are asked questions from the areas of language
arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the fine arts, world languages (French and Spanish)
physical education, health, and technology.
