Southeastern hosts Curriculum Contest

DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern Oklahoma State University will host the annual Curriculum Contest Thursday (March 27) on the Durant campus.

One of the oldest events of its kind in the state, the first Curriculum Contest was held at Southeastern in 1910.

Contest director Dr. James Britton said, “The curriculum contest offers an opportunity for high school students in southeastern Oklahoma to demonstrate their proficiency in a broad range of subjects as they compete against their peers.       Thus far, we have more than 1,600 students from 68 schools who will participate in 41 contests.”

Students will also be offered entertainment, several lunch options, and the opportunity for advisement and enrollment if they wish.

“Southeastern is proud to be able to present this contest for high school students who wish to compete academically and we are grateful to the sponsors who make this possible,’’ Britton said.

The day’s activities will begin at 9:30 a.m. Thursday in the Glen D. Johnson Student Union.
