Armuchee High Wins Floyd County Schools Academic Decathlon 

The Armuchee High Academic Decathlon team was crowned champions in the Floyd County Schools Academic Decathlon competition held virtually on Thursday, January 7, 2021. Zayden Sullins of Coosa High was the highest-scoring individual participant this year with 3,871 total points. The theme for questions in this year's competition was “The Cold War.”

As the first-place finisher, Armuchee High will now represent Floyd County Schools in the state competition in February. Second place finisher, Model High, as well as Coosa High and Pepperell High, will now wait to see if their point totals will qualify as Wild Card entries. Wild Card entries are selected based on team point totals from local school system competitions across the state.  

The Academic Decathlon features three divisions of competition: Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity. The academic contest features competitions in literature, math, economics, social science, science, music, and art.
