How do you plan for a contest that basically requires you to know everything?
Well…we locked ourselves in my classroom and tried to learn everything about everything: Explorers, Native American history, US history, world geography, current events, bugs, biology, dinosaurs, wars, math word problems and plate tectonics.
In the end, Todd County High School’s Quiz Bowl team, coming off of a 2nd place win last year at the Lakota Nation Invitational in Rapid City, charged through to an undefeated 1st place victory on December 17, 2010.
Not only are the students to be commended for their perfect work as a team, but also for their individual successes in the Knowledge Bowl tests – though Todd County only had five students participate in the individual testing portion, they received 5th place in overall team scores out of 20 teams participating.
