The other Intermediate campus will not be competing this year. So there will not be any 5th grade events at the 22-23 UIL competition. If you have a 5th grader that is interested in any of the 5-8 events, please have them complete the interest form! UIL allows students to compete up a grade level, so all interested students should try out for the UIL Team! Contact Mrs. Croft or Mrs. Woods for more information.
