Congratulations to the KHS UIL Academic Journalism Team.

Starting Dec. 1 and through Dec. 3, they competed in the Central Texas Invitational UIL Meet.

The meet was virtual. Students wrote their contest papers here which were then uploaded to the UIL in Austin for judging. Judging was done Sunday, and KHS received an email Monday morning with the results. There were over 1,900 entries, and the competition was tough, so this is a great start to the KHS UIL Academic season.
