For 17 years, The Winners Circle has provided various types of study guides for students competing in the UIL academic contests.  Each year, UIL coaches, academic coordinators, and principals have  acknowledged the effectiveness of the materials by reporting the success of their students and by buying the materials year after year.  Students and coaches  who have yet to try the materials are invited to join The Winners' Circle  and gain the competitive edge for success.

What The Winners Circle Offers

The Winners' Circle helps students prepare for UIL by offering the following:

  • Study guides for the 2016-2017 literary criticism tests include monthly literary criticism practice tests, The Joy Luck Club study guide, a study guide to accompany Rudyard Kipling Poems,  William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night study questions, and A Guide to Poetry Analysis.
  • Ready Writing prompts are mailed monthly.
  • Speech topics and current events practice prompts are mailed monthly.
  • Current event questions and answers are also mailed monthly.

See our order form for more information.
