Scholastic Bowl


How quickly can you answer questions that test how much you know about a variety of academic subjects?

That's the challenge of Scholastic Bowl, a general knowledge quiz in which students from area schools compete to buzz in first to answer questions and earn points for their teams.

Students must try out to earn a spot on Elm Middle School's Scholastic Bowl team, which is coached and sponsored by social studies teacher Ms. Susan Hawes.

Scholastic Bowl season runs concurrently with the girls basketball season. Tryouts and initial practices take place in late January. The season starts in February and concludes in March.
