Purpose: The purpose of the UIL Social Studies Team is to complement the academic curriculum and motivate students as they acquire higher levels of knowledge. Also to challenge students to confront issues of importance and to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of specific skills. This is a great way to find out how your Social Studies skills match up with the best and brightest in the District and State!
