Local Florida Euro Challenge Competition for HS | Virtually

Event information


Despite the bad conditions in Florida and New York, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, we were able to organize virtually the preliminary Euro Challenge Competition for Florida High Schools this year. The Judges in New York were able to judge the Florida schools we recruited via video conference on March 31st and April 8th. One school has been selected to advance to the semi-finals and finals.

Congratulation to Gulliver Preparatory School

which won the preliminary Euro Challenge Competition round in Florida this year. It has been three years in a row that the school won the preliminary round in Florida and advanced to New York. We are proud that Gulliver Preparatory represents Florida. We want to thank the school, its students and teacher for their hard work, and especially their teacher, Mr. Kamal James, for his dedication and leadership.

We wish all the best to the school for the semifinal and final rounds in New-York, which this year, amid the Covid-19, will be organized virtually at the end of May. This is the 1st time in 15 years that the finals will be held remotely in New York for high schools from 16 U.S. states: Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, and the District of Colombia.

Go Florida and Gulliver Preparatory School!
