Make a Scene in 2018!

The theme of this year's CAC is "All the World's a Stage" - focusing on Broadway shows. The CAC Stage Crew is holding a “Make a Scene” contest. Teams are invited to act out a scene or perform a song from a favorite Broadway musical. Teams that wish to enter will audition on video during their team photo time (or schedule an alternate time with the photographer). Auditions areĀ limited to 5 minutes. All entries will be reviewed and the top 3 will be chosen by the CAC Stage Crew to be presented at the banquet. Guests will have the chance to vote for their favorite during dinner.

The Commissioner's Academic Challenge is a highly academic statewide high school tournament inaugurated in 1986. The districts are placed in three divisions based on the fall FTE summary provided by the Florida Department of Education. Each team consists of six members (a maximum of four players during each of the three rounds and two alternates) and a coach. A maximum of six teams may compete in one competition round. This is not a quick response, "Trivial Pursuit" contest. Instead, it is a slower-paced tournament in which players are asked questions from the areas of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, the fine arts, world languages (French and Spanish) physical education, health, and technology. The questions are written by educators from high schools throughout the state.
