Brandon Carr, State of Ready… Writing

Junior Brandon Carr has qualified to compete in the state competition for Ready Writing because of his performance at the Regional UIL Academic Competition in Denton, Texas. The state competition will be held on May 21 and 22 in Austin. “It came as a shock to me at first, especially since we had no formal preparation,” said Carr. The competition consists of various rounds with each containing various open topics and each contestant spends about two hours talking about their opinions towards these topics. Carr placed third in Regionals, and will compete in state next week.
