The state competition was all online. Normally we go to Casper College to compete, but it changed due to COVID. Speeches and Interviews were done by Zoom. The rest of the testing was online. The theme for the year was the cold war. Students studied the curriculum related to the Cold War in Art, Music, Science, Social Science, Economics, and Literature. They also competed in Math, Essay, Interview, and Speech. Students compete with others who have similar GPA's. Medals are awarded in each subject area for each GPA category (Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity).

Four of our kids are planning to compete in the USAD national online individual competition in April.
