The MNCS Junior High Knowledge Bowl Team Team is on Fire!!!
So far we have competed in 4 meets with our team placing FIRST 2 times, also placing 2nd and 6th. Way to go students – you represent MNCS with great integrity, and we are so proud of you!!! We will be competing at Sub Regionals on Dec. 8th, if we qualify we’ll move on to Regionals on Dec. 12th. Our JHKB teams compete against schools from all over South Central Minnesota (Region 9). Each team consists of up to 6 students. At each meet they work as a team to compete in a 60 question multiple choice written test to establish the rankings at the beginning. The team then competes in 3 oral rounds, consisting of 45 questions each, with 15 seconds to answer each question in a “Jeopardy” like setting. It starts with knowledge and depends on communication, as the team needs to effectively communicate with each other to find the best answer for the question – and do it quickly!! Question topics range from core academic subjects to important current events. So, wish us luck as we go forward in competitions!
