> National Finals
The 2016 national finals took place April 28th – 30th in Anchorage, Alaska, at the Hilton.
Show off everything you remember at a competition you'll never forget; once a year, we invite qualifying teams in every state to join us for an electrifying finale to the Academic Decathlon® season.
The national competition is more than ten challenging events and a championship to be won—it’s your chance to meet fellow Decathletes from across the United States. You’ll trade not just speech topics, but war stories; not just Facebook invites, but lifelong insights.
Plus, it’s more than national. Each year, teams outside the United States are invited to qualify online for the chance to join the Academic Decathlon® community in person at the national finals.
The 2015 national finals took place April 16th – 18th in Garden Grove, California, at the Hyatt Regency.
Note: Online national competitions for small, medium, and large schools are also open to qualified teams from each participating state. Please contact us for details.
