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.


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.
