The tournament offered all academic, speaking and debate events which emulates a true district format. With the exception of speech and debate, the 6A schools are kept within a tournament within themselves and the 5A and below schools are in another separate tournament. It is a unique tournament format that basically has two tournaments in one which gives the schools an idea of where they're at as far as their competition is concerned.

Edinburg North High School was the overall winner for 6A and Robert Vela High School was the winner for 5A and below.

"I'm just real happy that all the students, teachers and administration were able to come together and give such a positive impression of who we really are at Edcouch-Elsa," EEHS U.I.L. Coordinator Jack Jasso said.
