Team Okaloosa Named State Academic Team Champs

Team Okaloosa does it again - State Academic Team Champs for the Commissioner’s Academic Challenge (Division 2) held the weekend of April 11- 12 at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

“We beat Citrus County by 3 POINTS!” said Carol Bernich, District Coordinator of Academic Teams.  “It came down to points earned on the team worksheet, and we received three more points than they did.  Talk about a nail-biter!”
