Knowledge Bowl

This interdisciplinary academic competition promotes academic achievement and rewards academic excellence. During a Knowledge Bowl meet, teams of students work cooperatively to solve oral and written round questions. No team is eliminated during a meet and every team participates in every round. Questions are related to all areas of learning typical of secondary educational programs.

Knowledge Bowl competitions test students’ recall and problem solving abilities, critical thinking skills and teamwork skills. Students compete in Round Robin competitions in January, February, and March. Sub-Regions and Regions are held in March. The top teams from Regions advance to MSC State Knowledge Bowl competitions.

Through teamwork, students participating in Knowledge Bowl:

  • Gain responsibility and a spirit of cooperation
  • Sharpen skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation
  • Acquire vast amounts of knowledge in many areas
  • Gain poise and self-confidence
