Junior High Knowledge Bowl
The Minnesota Service Cooperative Knowledge Bowl competitions are interdisciplinary academic contests for students. The Junior High Knowledge Bowl is for students in grades 7-9. During the contest, teams of students compete in written and oral rounds by answering questions related to all areas of learning, typical of secondary educational programs. Questions test students recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. This competition provides a format for student growth centered around academics. Teams consist of six students (6 competing in the written round and 5 competing in each oral round).
Teams compete in Round Robin competitions at the Southeast Service Cooperative in October, November and December. Each team then competes in a Sub-Regional competition and the top nine teams from each tier (3 tiers) advance to Regionals in January.
