Online Competitions[edit]

Each of the three following competitions consist of 8 events: Art, Economics, Essay, Language and Literature, Math, Music, Science, and Social Science. These competitions are held online to ease execution, organization, and costs to both USAD and participating teams. The absence of Speech and Interview from the competitions logically follow this distance-testing scenario.
