For the eighth consecutive year, a team of Altura employees volunteered as proctors for the Super Quiz portion of the Riverside County Office of Education’s academic decathlon, which takes place over two weekends.

Teams of nine students compete in written tests, speeches, interviews, essays and the Super Quiz. This year 22 teams from 18 high school from throughout Riverside County participated.

The event’s finale, a college bowl-style Super Quiz, is the only portion of the decathlon open to the public.
