ACUI's 88th Annual Conference

Battle of the Regions

Let the games begin! The tradition of Battle of the Regions continues this year with Poetry Slam, College Bowl, Spelling Bee, Coin Wars, and, new this year, the Amazing Quarter Quest competition. Similar to the popular reality television show “The Amazing Race,” ACUI has put its own twist on this event. Teams of four will navigate the French Quarter obtaining pictures, collecting souvenirs, and performing challenges. Now that we have sparked your interest, get your team ready for a fun night of adventure! Battle of the Region points are limited to one team per region.

All regions are encouraged to earn extra Battle of the Regions points by participating in the various activities to raise money for the ACUI Education and Research Fund. Get involved with Coin Wars, Golf Tournament, and the FUNd Run!

Start planning and practicing now for these events because points will be awarded for participation and competition results. Individual winners will be recognized and the winner of the Battle of the Regions grand prize will be announced at the Closing Banquet Masquerade Ball.
