Academic Challenge

For the past 40 years, the Olde English Consortium (OEC) has been proud to facilitate Academic Competition throughout the north central region of South Carolina - promoting academic competition the same way we celebrate athletic competition. The OEC just completed its 2017 competition season. 7th, 8th, & High School teams competed each Wednesday (from January 7 thru March 4, 2015) in Academic "Quiz-Bowl-style" Competition with 44 teams from throughout this north central region of South Carolina. Records from the regular season determined the seeding in our Regional OEC Tournament. Over 400 of our region's brightest students... 28 schools... 44 teams... came together to comete in a grueling 3-month regular seaon "Quiz Bowl" weekly competition... culminating in our OEC "Regionals" Tournament. 

After Regionals, the OEC co-hosts the "State Championship of Academics." The Olde English Consortium, along with the Pee Dee Education Center, Midlands Districts, and the Western Piedmont Education Consortium, host an Annual State Championship of Academics: a fully sanctioned regular season - culminating in regional championships - leading to the Spring State Championship (held every year, after regional tournaments). This past year, South Carolina had four regions competing - each region designating region champions - sending their region champs to the State Championship Tournament.
