What is the UIL?
The UIL is an opportunity for students to take what they have learned from the classroom and apply it in a competitive but friendly academic environment.  The goals of the UIL are as follows:
  • bring excitement to learning
  • work with other students in a competitive atmosphere
  • achieve mastery of essential knowledge and skill
  • test students' skills and knowledge
  • experience the satisfaction of a successful and rewarding performance
  • achieve academic excellence and recognition
What are the contests that students can participate in?
At Justin Elementary, students have participated in the following:
  • Number Sense (grades 4-5)
  • Oral Reading (grades 3-5)
  • Spelling (grades 3-5)
  • Creative Writing ( grade 2)
  • Storytelling (grades 2-3)
  • Ready Writing (grades 3-5)
  • Dictionary Skills (grade 5) 
  • Maps, Graphs, & Charts (grades 4-5)

When will UIL begin and when is the competition?
 Due to the limit of entrants allowed, tryouts are usually held in late fall.  Once tryouts are held, practices are once a week, and usually begin after Christmas.  UIL is generally scheduled towards the end of March/early April.
 
We are always looking for parents to help coach events!
