MATTOON -- What happens when you take some of the most brilliant minds from area high schools and put them under one roof? Nothing other than an academic face off, where teams are pitted against each other in eight subject areas in order to take home the regional Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering (WYSE) championship title.

Lake Land College recently held the regional WYSE Academic Challenge and 26 schools came together to battle in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering graphics, English, mathematics and physics.

Students completed written examinations in seven different areas of study. Each student participated in two tests, and the highest scores by members of each team determined the composite team score.

St. Anthony, Paris, and Mattoon high schools were victorious in their divisions and took home the regional championship titles. Winners in team and individual competition are advancing to sectionals at Eastern Illinois University on March 8.

Teams advancing in the 300 division are: St. Anthony High School, Cumberland High School, Okaw Valley High School, and Dieterich High School.

Teams advancing in the 700 division are: Paris High School and Sullivan High School.

Teams advancing in the 1500 division are Mattoon High School and Charleston High School
