Smart Money's On Academic Decathlon
SAFE was proud to support the achievements of outstanding local teens in the 33rd Annual Sacramento County Academic Decathlon. As title sponsor of the event, SAFE provides $10,000 in scholarships for Academic Decathlon participants each year, and also sponsors the Highlands High, Foothill High, and Rio Linda High School teams.
SAFE's support for the event has remained a longtime commitment for the credit union. This funding means that teams from Rio, Foothill, and Highlands high schools are able to compete against other schools on the subjects of economics, language and literature, music, science, art, mathematics, and social science. The competition culminated in the high-energy team event, called the Super Quiz, which was open to the public. The topic of this year's Super Quiz was Russia.
SAFE is honored to support a variety of community and educational programs, and we encourage our community members and neighbors to support our region's Academic Decathlon. The teams spend months preparing for this demanding competition. In addition to mastering the extensive academic content, students learn about teamwork, goal setting, planning, and leadership. We are especially appreciative of the time and talents of the Academic Decathlon coaches.
SAFE warmly wishes this year's exceptional participants success in their bright futures to come.
