The rules for Disease Detectives seem to be getting more and more vague every year, regarding the math part of the event, which is, in itself, the most important part of the competition. :/

Generally, the basic test format is the same for both divisions: you're given a scenario, and you have to analyze it. In Division C, I'd think that there's usually more focus on the math, as well as questions for more in-depth analysis than B.

A few different things, I'm not on much but my sis did division C last year. You have to do everything division b does PLUS doing a little more. :lol: I too lazy to type it out right now though so..... there is something on here i found that have what else division C has to do of course im only talking about Disease Detectives, there are a few more challenging events and (in my experience) quite a few people drop out because of sports and band and other things like dance so you have to fill in those spaces. There is a little less competition because two or three middle schools feed into one highschool

Yep, the topic is still Food-Borne Illness, though in my experience, the topic of Disease Detectives doesn't have very much bearing on how the event is actually written.
