UIL Academics


The UIL offers the most comprehensive literary and academic competition in the nation, with 23 high school events. These activities, which exist to complement the academic curriculum, are designed to motivate students as they acquire higher levels of knowledge, to encourage students to confront issues of importance and to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of specific skills. Students are challenged to think critically, exhibiting much more than knowledge and comprehension. In addition, we have students competing in Mock Trial, VASE - Visual Arts Scholastic Event, and One Act Play.

By successfully competing in academic UIL, students can earn college scholarships. Additionally, after an HHS student competes in academic UIL for three years, or advances past the district level of competition at any point, he/she will earn a letterman jacket.
Callie Lawrence (room 309) is the Academic UIL Coordinator. She can be contacted at clawrence@hendersonisd.org or (903) 655-5500, ext. 4534.
