• KNOWLEDGE BOWL™ - STATE competitions are interdisciplinary academic contests. Questions test student's recall, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. During the contest, teams compete in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning, typical of secondary educational programs.

    Selecting a team for competition can be conducted in various ways. The selection process is left up to each school district.

    Grade Levels: Statewide and regionally for teams of 5 students - for grades 9 through 12. Regionally for teams of 6 students - for grades 7 and 8.

    Written Round: Each competition consists of one round of sixty multiple choice written questions. One point is awarded for each correctly answered question; points are not deducted for incorrect answers. The written round scores determine team placement for the oral rounds.

    Oral Round: In an oral round, forty-five questions are asked. One team member serves as an alternate so only four members compete during the oral round (at Jr. High level, we allow five on a team). The reader asks the question orally and the teams press down on a pressure sensitive strip attached to a computer when they think they can answer the question. After buzzing in, team members may discuss their answer with one another before providing the judge with a final answer. An appointed spokesperson is the official answer person for each team. Points are awarded for correctly answered questions.
