UIL » Journalism


Legacy students are participating in UIL Academics for the first time this year.  15 students have competed in 4 events at 3 tournaments over the Spring semester.  The students compete in News Writing, Editorial Writing, Feature Writing, and Headline Writing.  Each of the events requires the student to write a specific type of journalistic article in a 45 minute time limit except for Feature Writing which allows a 60 minute time limit.  The students have attended Saturday tournaments in Burnet, Lampasas, and Round Rock.  They have been meeting on Thursdays after school to prepare for competition and improve their journalistic writing styles.
