The Camarillo Academic Olympics (CAO) began in 1983 as a community project, spearheaded by Rick Smith, a Camarillo visionary. Mr. Smith was inspired by the 1984 Olympic summer games that would be held the following year in Los Angeles. While the Olymjpics showcased the world's greatest athletes, Mr. Smith developed a competition to recognize and honor the academic achievement of younger scholars.
This biannaul program allows 4th - 8th grade students to participate in up to three areas of study, including Science, Math, History, Current Events, Language Arts, Creative Arts, Speech, and Geography. Participating students will compete first at the classroom level. The students with the top 4 scores will advance to the City Preliminaries.
