Academic Events

Honor staff and motivate students through our awards programs and scholastic competitions.


We promote excellence in public education by organizing countywide programs and competitions such as Academic Decathlon, History Day L.A., Very Special Arts Festival, Teachers of the Year, Spelling Bee and Science Fair. These annual contests, some of which are among the largest of their kind in the state, are designed to focus public attention on student achievements and educator accomplishments that are reached through dedication, practice and commitment.
