Autumn is a Great Time to Start
Set goals. Plan. Order study materials. Start now; don't wait until January! Think positively. Talk positively. Study. Learn. Build a UIL Accounting study notebook. Practice (and make it fun). Take tests from UIL archives. Take more tests. And then take more tests! (Five months from the first day of school, will you wish you had started today?) Feel confident at district because you know you've done all you can do to be ready. Execute plan. Enjoy the sense of accomplishment. Repeat all the above forthe regional competition. Repeat again and see you at State Meet!!!
The 2020 tests (Inv A, Inv B, District only) have been uploaded to "Archived Exams" on this site. Because of the pandemic, only three tests were written for the year 2020. The District 2020-D was used in the "UIL At Home Experience" in April 2020. It would make an EXCELLENT practice test.
The 2021 UIL Fall Study Packet contains the 2021 Inv A, Inv B, District, Region and State tests. The UIL Fall Study Packet is available in digital download format from the UIL Academics website for a very minimal cost from their "Shop" online (Top Menu Bar).
Fall 2021 Student Activity Conferences
Please check the UIL Academics website for the schedule of the TWO in-person locations planned for this year. These Saturday morning conferences are designed for coaches and students, first-timers and veterans. There will be a BASICS session for first-timers. The ENRICHMENT session will include a detailed solving of the big lay-out problem from the 2021 Regional exam. We hope you will plan to attend (and bring your electronic tablet, calculator and pencil). (Stay away Covid and leave us all alone!)
Congratulations to ALL 2021 State Qualifiers!
One thing we can all agree, the 2021 State Meet was...UNIQUE! The pandemic presented challenges, but that did not stop so many of you contestants and coaches to continue to strive towards your best effort! Compared to the year 2020 when we had NO contest season, 2021 allowed you to participate in some form of normalcy. We are all grateful to the UIL Academics Staff in Austin for creating a pathway for competition!
Even though the State test was challenging for time and covered many regional and state concepts, there was a Perfect Score and many of the scores were quite high. That is a testament to those of you who worked hard to learn the Accounting theory that covered AN ENTIRE TEXTBOOK!!! BRAVO!
In order to showcase some of the Special Recognition categories that we typically celebrate during our Awards Ceremony, look to the left menu on this page for the link "2021 Special Recognition." This year we are starting a new category of recognition called "Powerhouse Team" in which all FOUR team members score in the 300s and up.
Are You Receiving my Email?
Once or twice a year, I send an email to high school Accounting teachers and coaches to provide current information about UIL Accounting or to ask for your input. When I send out group email, many are "bounced back," and I have no idea who has received the mail and who has not. If you wish to hear from me, please provide me with your email address; then make sure your school's spam filter will not block what I send. When your email address changes, please let me know, and I will update my contacts. If you are receiving my email and wish for it to stop, just email to tell me, and I will remove your address from my UIL contacts.
The BEST way to stay current is to visit this website and the UIL Academics website frequently in the fall and more often in the spring.
Would You Like to Assist with UIL Accounting State Meet in 2022?
If you are a retired high school UIL Accounting coach, would you be interested in volunteering at the 2022 UIL Accounting State Meet? We would love for more volunteers to be involved as conference assistants and graders. Please email me if you are interested. Thank you!
