PACE seeking nominations for new members

Post by Adventure Temple Trail »

The Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence is currently accepting nominations for new members. These are due to current president Mike Bentley at [email protected] by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, June 10.

PACE has many objectives, among which are:
  • to promote and encourage the growth of quality high school invitational tournaments around the country,
  • to provide guidance or assistance to other colleges or high schools that wish to organize such tournaments,
  • to encourage innovation and creativity in academic competition,
  • to establish visibility for college academic team programs that run high school tournaments,
  • to foster cooperation among college and high school programs in preparation for upcoming regional, state, or national tournaments,
  • to encourage participation of teams in tournaments across the country prior to regional, state, or national tournaments,
  • to allow all teams adequate opportunity to practice, compete, and socialize among other fellow competitors,
  • to produce the question set for and run the National Scholastic Championship each year.
If someone you know would be willing and able to contribute to these goals, please consider sending their name (and, optionally but helpfully, some details about their involvement in quizbowl) to Mike Bentley at the address above. While returning high school students are not eligible, anyone who will be out of high school in 2014-15 is eligible. Thanks!

Nominees who receive enough votes will be offered membership in PACE. A list of new members will be posted once we've heard back from everyone.
