ENRICHING THE LIVES OF STUDENTS

The Kentucky Association for Academic Competition (KAAC)

Challenge and reward your students!

Students rarely have the opportunity to showcase their academic achievement, and standard classroom content may not adequately challenge and draw out the full potential of every student. KAAC can help you provide the academic rigor and creativity your students desire, and give them the recognition they deserve. Through KAAC-sponsored academic competitions, students:

  • Broaden their knowledge base
  • Build relationships with like-minded peers
  • Learn the value of teamwork
  • Develop new skill sets that will help them succeed beyond the classroom

Future Problem Solvers

Competition for 21st Century Learning Skills

Future Problem Solving (FPS) teaches students how to think, not what to think. The diverse components of FPS prepare students for emerging new realities. Competition fosters hands-on involvement, enhanced communication and collaboration, and out-of-the-box thinking. FPS is offered both as a team competition within Governor's Cup, and separately through FPS Component Events.
