Senior High Knowledge Bowl
The Minnesota Service Cooperative Knowledge Bowl competitions are interdisciplinary academic contests for students. The Senior High Knowledge Bowl is for students in grades 9-12. During the contest, teams of students compete in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning, typical of secondary educational programs. Questions test students recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. This competition provides a format for student growth centered around academics.
Teams consist of five students (5 competing in the written round and 4 competing in each oral round). Teams compete in Round Robin and Sub-Regional, and the top 12 teams (top 6 teams from each day) from each tier advance to Regionals. Finally, the top 2 teams from Tier A and top 2 teams from Tier AA, plus the 3rd place team from either tier that has the highest score, advance to the State competition in April.
