(Augusta, Ga) – Paine College Honda Team will be hosting its first annual Paine College Honda Campus All-Star Challenge Team High School Invitational to area high schools on January 21, 2013. The event will take place at 11am in the Candler Memorial Library building on the campus of Paine College. The academic competition will feature Richmond County high school students, competing in the game play format used by the Honda Campus All Star Challenge.

The Honda Campus All-Star Challenge is the first-ever academic competition between students at America's Historically Black Colleges & Universities. Now in its 24th season, nearly 100,000 HCASC players have demonstrated their incredible intellects and fast recall, and for their efforts, have earned over $7 million in grants from Honda for their institutions.

Paine College has competed in the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge for 23 years and would like to expose local area high schools to exciting experience that is the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge.  This year’s inaugural high school competition will coincide with the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday to celebrate the intellectual excellence that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. exemplified in his own life.

The community is encouraged to attend and support our local CSRA high school talent and the Honda Team of Paine College.
