Folsom High School's Academic Decathlon is advancing to the state competition after finishing second place in the 35th annual countywide contest Feb. 7.
Hundreds of Sacramento County high school students on more than two dozen teams competed in the 2015 Sacramento County Academic Decathlon.
Folsom High have been invited to join first-place finishers Bella Vista High and third-place finisher Pleasant Grove High at the California Academic Decathlon from March 20-21 in Sacramento.
To prepare for the Academic Decathlon, students devoted months of study to the 2015 theme: "New Alternatives in Energy: Ingenuity and Innovation." Students competed for awards in 10 demanding categories: economics, art, science, social science, language/literature, mathematics, music, essay, interview, and speech.
