Lake Land College to host record-breaking WYSE competition

What happens when you take some of the most brilliant minds from area high schools and put them under one roof? Nothing other than an academic face off, where teams are pitted against each other in eight subject areas in order to take home the WYSE regional championship title.  

The regional WYSE (Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering) Academic Challenge will be held at Lake Land College Friday, Feb. 8. Twenty-four schools, registering 403 students will come together to battle in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering graphics, English, mathematics and physics. 

“For this year’s competition, we’re breaking a few records,” said Brent Todd, coordinator of the regional competition and director of dual credit at Lake Land. “We’ll see more schools and students participate than ever before, which is a great accomplishment for everyone involved.” 

Each high school will compete against other high schools in the same division, which is based on school enrollment, and awards will be given to both individual competitors and teams. Students advancing at the regional competition will compete at Eastern Illinois University in March with another round for advancement, which will be held at the University of Illinois in April.

During the event, students will be tested from 9:20-11:10 a.m., with an awards ceremony following at 1:30 p.m. 

At last year’s competition, St. Anthony, Teutopolis and Charleston High Schools were victorious in their divisions at the regional competition.
