Knowledge Bowl

Senior High Knowledge Bowl, often called a sport for the mind, is an interdisciplinary academic contest designed for students in grades 9 –12.

Teams of students compete in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning typical of high school educational programs. Questions test students’ recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. Participation takes quick thinking and teamwork, and, like all team sports, students learn to work together to reach their goal. 

Knowledge Bowl season runs January through March. Teams attend three meets (typically one meet per month), and the top teams in each of our two tiers advance to region tournaments held in March. Six regional winners (three in each tier) advance to the state competition in April. (Our high school's team was the 2013 state champion.)
