It is intended that the current manual will cover competition for five years (spring of 2016 through spring of 2020), at which time a new manual will be adopted. However, in order to correct errors discovered within the manual, the Competition Annual Update has been posted on the AACS website and any changes noted therein will govern the competition. School leadership should review the Competition Annual Update and You Need to Know each year and inform students, teachers, coaches, parents, and others of any changes.
