It’s the season for bees and buzzers.
Not the bumble variety: With springtime upon us, regional, state and national competitions are getting in full swing, and the number of contests available to students is astounding.
The challenges range from the Shakespeare Competition to Science Olympiad; from the Carolina Panthers Number Crunch to the Future City Competition. To get into the higher-level competitions going on now, students often have to have been involved in a club or team since the fall. But now is the ideal time to gauge what you might like. Check out these teams and clubs and competitions now and figure out what you’d like to sign up for next year. Approximate dates for competitions and sign-ups are usually the same from year to year.
Here’s a cursory – not exhaustive – sampling of what’s out there for Charlotte-area students throughout the year, and how to sign up.
