To conclude the 30th annual Fresno County Academic Decathlon (AcaDec) Competition, held at Glacier Point Middle School on Feb. 4, FC's seven-member AcaDec team participated in the Super Quiz.
For this event, each group -- varsity, scholastic and honors -- had to answer 10 questions about social science, the 2012 Super Quiz topic.
While the students sat with their proctors on the floor of Glacier Point's Gym, spectators filled the bleachers and watched to see how much their team had learned about the Age of Imperialism, this year's AcaDec theme.
Rich Rodriguez, an anchor at KMPH Fox 26, served as quizmaster for the event. He read each question aloud as it was projected on the screen for everyone to view. After Rodriguez finished reading the question, students had seven seconds to select one of five possible answers on their score sheet.
The group gained one point for each correct answer. At the end of the tournament, points were tallied and factored into the overall Super Quiz score.
The following slideshow features 58 photos from the event, showcasing varsity, scholastic and honors competitors, as well as fans and other figures.
