Houston Junior High Knowledge Bowl Places 1st
Houston Junior High Knowledge Bowl Places 1st
Congratulations to the Junior High Knowledge Bowl Team 1 for placing 1st at Regionals on Wednesday!  Houston Team 2 also represented Houston well with a 10th place finish.  Mrs. Carr said her favorite part of the day was when a coach from another school told her how impressed she was with how well the Houston teams work together and have fun.  What a proud moment for the Hurricanes! 

The Junior High Knowledge Bowl, sponsored by the Southeast Service Cooperative, is for students in grades 7-9.  During each of the contests listed below, our Junior High teams competed in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning.  Questions tested our students’ recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills.  (credit: SEC)
