Quiz Bowl Team

On Friday, June 8, four members of the Maggie Walker Academic Quiz Bowl team left for the 2012 PACE NSC, the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence National Scholastics Championship. PACE was held June 9 and 10 on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Academic Quiz Bowl team (or BoB for Battle of the Brains) participates throughout the school year in local, regional, state and national quiz bowl competitions in addition to the state and national history bowl.

The team welcomes new members for 2012-2013. For incoming freshmen who enjoy Jeopardy or who have participated in Knowledge Masters in middle school, BoB is a great fit. Practice will resume in September in Room 316 weekdays during lunch.
