ILLIAC (Spring 2019) Available for HS mirrors

Post by Illinois Admin » Mon Nov 26, 2018 3:52 pm

The Academic Buzzer Team at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is pleased to announce that ILLInois Academic Competition (ILLIAC) is available for high school mirrors starting March 2019.

Eligibility

All high schoolers are eligible to play ILLIAC as closed teams in designated high school mirrors or in mirrors designated for high school and college teams (such mirrors are listed in the college announcement). HS Chimera teams are only allowed in extenuating circumstances with the approval of both the editors and the host.

Difficulty

This set is aiming to replicate the difficulty of past years' MUT, EMT, and SMT, so occupying a spot between ACF Fall and EFT.

Editing

The set will be written by the Academic Buzzer Team and the Uni High Quiz Bowl Team, with help form Alex Dzuric and the Centennial High School team.
Mike Etzkorn and Cole Timmerwilke are head editing this tournament with science help from Mike Sorice and Eric Murkerjee. I, Bradley McLain, Bryan Lu, Koby Theobald, and Mitch McCullar will be serving as the subject editing team. John Lawrence, Itamar Naveh-Benjamin, and Tyler Vaughan will be helping with difficulty control, copy editing, and quality control.
