Throughout the program, students are assigned to instructor groups. The program had eight instructor groups in 2019. While the instructors are editors, advisers and mentors for their groups, they’re also team captains in a friendly competition.
Outside of the classroom, the groups participate in 10 competitions. These include current events quizzes, Junior Junior Olympics and chereoke. Instructor group points earned throughout the five weeks were totaled by the community associates.
This chart tracks the groups’ point totals over time.
