    The University Interscholastic League offers the most comprehensive literary and academic competitive program in the nation. It offers more than any other UIL division in terms of activities, with 22 high school and 18 elementary and junior high contests. More than a half million students participate in UIL academic contests.

    In addition, the UIL sponsors the Interscholastic League Press Conference, one of the nation's oldest, largest and most highly respected student press associations.

    These activities, which exist to complement the academic curriculum, are designed to motivate students as they acquire higher levels of knowledge, to challenge students to confront issues of importance, and to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of specific skills.  Hirschi teams and sponsors are as follows:
