99th-annual Curriculum Contest scheduled for March 29

DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern Oklahoma State University will host the 99th-annual Curriculum Contest on Thursday, March 29.

Dr. James Britton, Professor in the Chemistry, Computer and Physical Sciences Department, is in his second year as coordinator of the curriculum contest.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for our area high schools and for Southeastern,” Britton said. “It’s a chance for the students to compete and be introduced to Southeastern at the same time.”

“The contest will be all computerized this year. We’ve been working on this project for almost a year now. It should be easier for everybody involved.”

The curriculum contest will feature approximately 2,500 students from 70 area high schools participating in 40 contests with trophies and medals awarded to winning schools and students.

Exams will cover numerous subjects, including mathematics, science, English, foreign language and computers.

Along with the academic competition, there will be lots of fun activities and seniors will have the opportunity to enroll while on campus.
