HondaAllStar

This year Dillard University will compete in the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge (HCASC), the HBCU National Quiz Championship. HCASC is the first-ever academic quiz competition designed for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The questions cover traditional academic areas such as business, science, literature, history, geography, religion, philosophy, the social sciences and the arts, as well as current events, sports and pop culture. The competition also features African American history and culture.

Dillard University is among 89 HBCUs eligible for this year’s Honda Campus All-Star Challenge. Competition at Dillard University begins with the Power Search, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011 at 12 p.m. on Kabacoff Plaza and at 6 p.m. in the Kearny Dining Hall. A Power Search is a quick 30 question quiz that students can take to see what type of information is asked in HCASC questions. The Power Search is used to recruit the best, brightest and fastest players for Dillard University’s HCASC team. All students who compete in the Power Search are eligible for selection as a member of the varsity squad. Our varsity squad could advance to the National Championship Tournament in Los Angeles. The Nationals, featuring 48 HBCUs, is the academic competition version of March Madness.

Since 1989, pver 75,000 students have used their brainpower and buzzer-skills to earn over $6 million in grants from Honda via the HCASC. The competition is sanctioned by the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education and the Association of College Unions International. For more information, contact Dr. Valandra German at (504) 816-4477.
