Students from Mansfield High School and Legacy High School came out on top in their categories at the University Interscholastic League (UIL) academic and journalism contests.

Mansfield High School’s UIL academic team took home a gold medal in Current Issues and Events. The team members are Johnathan Dang, Jackson Harris, Keelie Jones and Claire Speakes. Harris also took home a bronze medal for his individual event. The academic state contest took place on May 6 in Austin, and only five teams qualified for the state level.

At UIL’s Interscholastic League Press Conference (ILPC), which occurred May 7-8 in Austin, Legacy High School’s journalism team earned two Silver Stars for the school’s student yearbook and newspaper publications. Schools have the opportunity to earn Gold, Silver and Bronze Star awards. Recipients of the Star Awards represent the top 10% of student newspapers and yearbooks in Texas.

The members of the Legacy High journalism team are Blake Hinerman, Nic Pixler, Jonah Pedroza, Abigail Morris, Zeina Halili, Keri Brown and Raylee Mallett. Legacy High journalism students also won 38 individual awards for the 2021 yearbook and 2022 online newspaper at the state journalism convention.

UIL offers the most comprehensive program of academic competition in the nation. There are 30 contests at the high school level, and more than half a million students participate in UIL academic contests each year.
