For those who have never participated, or watched a Knowledge Bowl competition, it is a little like Jeopardy for kids. Students are asked random questions about things ranging from geography to math to music and more!
The outcome of the meet is a combination of knowledge base of your team, strategy on oral versus written rounds, and practice with a buzzer — being fast on the draw! Twelve teams of students from Delta County had a great time competing in Hotchkiss.
