Academic Decathlon Competes "At" Regionals
On January 9th, the Mead AcaDeca team met in the High School library to compete online in the 2021 Nebraska Regional Academic Decathlon competition.
Even though the tests were set up differently than normal, the students still had to focus on the task at hand.
