Carter UIL Beginning …

Carter UIL season will begin next week, and many students lack information on the program benefits.

\"\\"\\"\"As posted on their website, UIL (University Interscholastic League) is an extracurricular competition program that covers a wide selection of academic areas against students from other schools within their district.

Students and coaches involved in UIL agree that confidence and learning are enhanced.

Placing in UIL helps with scholarship applications and gives students experience with real-life use of their school work.

“I know that it is a sort of competition between schools, but not much else,” said junior Joshua Cordonnier.

Cordonnier, like other students, was not aware that scholarships and academic development are benefits of being involved in these programs.

“I don’t know what I would get from joining UIL,” said junior Briana Martinez.

UIL Coordinator Claudia Camarillo wants to encourage students to join because she believes that Carter students have the potential to do well in competitions, once they find the subject that they are passionate about.

“We have a variety of topics ranging from math, science, writing, and speaking,” said Camarillo.

Camarillo believes that once students take the first step and try competing, they are opening up themselves to advantages over others.

“There was a senior last year which was awarded a scholarship in the amount $3,500 for a large part due to advancing to the state level competition. It wasn’t easy, but at the end of the day that’s money that the other kids don’t have access to,” said Camarillo.

There are also other benefits according to participants that cannot be learned or gained anywhere else.

“When I’m at a competition, I\\\’m surrounded by intelligent people, and it has such a positive effect on me because it reminds me of the type of people I should be friends with. That’s one of the main reasons I like UIL,” said junior Kenia Martinez.

Joining UIL may bring you new friendships, challenge you to be the best you can be, and teach you that practice eventually pays off.




University Interscholastic League (UIL) is an organization that organizes competitions between schools. UIL allows students to show their knowledge and be recognized.

Mrs. Camarillo, UIL coordinator, said,“ UIL is an organization that gives the students a lot of motivation, and it focuses on what they want to be later in life; as a team we also make students find their strength and what they like the most.”

Some activities that students can participate in UIL are:
  • Math
  • Number Sense
  • Science
  • Current Events
  • Calculators
  • Computer science
  • Ready Writing
  • Spelling
  • Informative and Persuasive Speaking
  • Journalism
  • Debate
  • Prose Poetry
  • Film Theatrical Design
  • Robotics

UIL is a tremendous opportunity for students to get a scholarships.

Andrea Olmedo said, “UIL for me is important because it helps me in my education, and it gives me more knowledge for life.”
