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.
Students who participate in knowledge bowl are required to attend weekly practices from December through March. At the senior high level, the top two teams from each school advance to the Region 5 Competition. The Top 4 teams from Region 5 advance to the State Knowledge Bowl competition in April.
