WHAT IS IT? Knowledge Bowl is kind of like a team Jeopardy competition. A school’s Knowledge Bowl team is made up of a total of 3 or more smaller teams, each consisting of 4 – 6 team members (sometimes up to 8 in middle school). Our school’s teams compete against other teams from neighboring schools to see who can answer the most questions in math, science, history, English, social studies, etc. During each competition, teams compete in a written round (45 multiple-choice questions) and two oral rounds (45 questions each). The winning team is based on the total number of questions answered correctly in all three rounds.
WHEN IS IT? This year the season will run from early January through to almost the end of February. Students meet for practice directly after school in room 206. Practices usually run from 3:50 to 4:30 in that same room. We practice Monday through Thursday until the meets begin in late February. Once the meets start, practices will be held only on the days we’re not meeting, but never on Fridays. In more recent years we’ve had to split the team into two different practice squads on an “every other day” practice schedule to accommodate the large number of kids who turn out, so be prepared for that if we have more than 30 participants. Please note that there are no practices or meets scheduled on any of the Fridays during the season.
