If your school is selected to host your district contest and you will conduct the district Accounting contest, you first need to have a very clear understanding of the Rules of the contest. The UIL Constitution & Contest Rules (C&CR) online has: 1) rules that are common to ALL academic contests, and 2) sections for each academic contest that include rules that apply only to that contest. And finally, each academic contest will have its own "HANDBOOK."
The Handbooks will also be used by regional contest directors and by the state contest director. The Accounting Handbook will reinforce the rules as set forth in the C&CR, but will also offer detailed procedures for guidance regarding how a contest should be conducted in order to accomplish uniformity across the state. The Accounting Handbook is available at the UIL Academics website.
Students interested in knowing what to expect on contest day may want to download the handout called A Typical Contest Day. Also of benefit to students is the handout called Testing Tips.
