Knowledge Bowl to Send Area’s Best to State — Dave’s Diary

Sochi?  So what! We’ve got mental Olympics right in our own backyard!  Students from about a dozen area high schools are scheduled to engage each other  -with berths to State tournaments on the line – during the Regional Knowledge Bowl competitions that are coming up during the last half of February.

The Knowledge Bowl program involves high school teams of up to six members who compete in tests of their knowledge in a broad range of areas, from history to math to literature.  Each competition involves a one-hour written round in which school team members work together to solve a list of 60 multiple-choice questions.  This is followed by three oral rounds during which three school teams try to outscore each other in a series of 45-question rounds.

Teams scheduled to compete at Ellensburg on Feb. 19 are:

-          1A:  Cle Elum-Roslyn, Highland, Royal, and White Swan.  The top team will advance to State.

-          2A:  Ellensburg, Grandview, Selah, Toppenish, Wapato, and West Valley, plus Ephrata from the north central Washington region.  The top three teams will advance to State.  (Two other squads, composed of students from Ellensburg, Selah, and West Valley, will also be participating on an unofficial basis.)

-          4A:  Yakima’s Davis High School and Yakima’s Eisenhower High School.  The top team will advance to State.
