Each year Academic Super Bowl crafts questions around a central theme. This year's theme was "The American Woman: A Century of Progress 1920-2020." Prior to the pandemic, teams would meet in regional competitions to compete with area schools. The top 6-scoring teams in the state would qualify for the State meet in Indianapolis. This year the state meet will be virtual as well and held on May 7th. The competition is divided into 5 subject categories and teams are allowed up to 5 members per subject.
