Teams find the right answers in Scholars’ Bowl | Education


The Dothan High team came in first with Abbeville Christian in second and Geneva County High School in Hartford in third.

This is the 39th Scholars’ Bowl hosted by Wallace Community College. While Wallace staff and faculty served as moderators, scorers, and timekeepers, the questions came from the National Academic Quiz Tournaments that hold quiz bowls for middle schools, high schools, and colleges.

Although there is a lot of preparation to compete as an academic team, participants said that no one has to know everything about everything. It’s teamwork, after all. While one person is good at literature, another may be better at history and another at math.

“Part of it is like knowing random facts about things, but there are categories like art and literature and sports and stuff like that,” said Amelia Long, a senior on the team at the county of Geneva. “You could watch the news every day and know half the questions.”

And teams don’t know what topics will be discussed, so the four-person setup chosen to go on a round can either work in a team’s favor or hurt them if their best person in history is sitting in the audience cringing at the whole bad story. answers.

For Geneva students, art is a field that sometimes leaves them perplexed.
