• 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.
    The 2020 STATE KNOWLEDGE BOWL MEET will be Thursday and Friday, April 2 & 3, 2020
