Special Announcement regarding the COVID-19 virus
With increasing numbers of communities taking precautions to deal with the spread of the COVID-19 virus, all previously scheduled Academic Challenge Bowl competitions are being suspended effective immediately.

This suspension is for all regions and all leagues and extends to associated programs such as the Interscholastic Chess League, the MasterMinds program, the pop culture ACRONYM competitions and any other CYPRAS-sponsored events.

This suspension will continue indefinitely, with any restart of competitions subject to clearance by local boards of health.

Our intention is to try and complete all regular season competitions for all schools when circumstances allow, and even if it means a significant delay, it is also our intention to offer playoffs to all qualifying schools.

These actions are not taken lightly but are intended to follow the guidance of health professionals regarding precautions to limit the spread of this disease.  It is our hope that efforts to contain this growing epidemic are successful, and that, upon clearance by the public health professionals, our programs may resume.
