On February 13th, Manson High School hosted the 7th match of the North Central Washington Knowledge Bowl Tournaments.
There were eight high schools with a total thirty-three teams vying for top spots in the competition. It was by far the largest tournament of the season.
In addition to the Manson Knowledge Bowl team, there were teams from: Okanogan, Liberty Bell, Tonasket, Cascade, Omak, Chelan, and Waterville. The competition was fierce and fun.
The questions were unbelievably challenging from various academic disciplines (e.g. “The Delian Amphictyony was centered on what Aegean Island?” Answer: Delos or “What kind of plain results in the penultimate stage of fluvial erosion?” Answer: peneplain).
With over 160 people participating in different roles (i.e. readers, participants, coaches, timekeepers, scorekeepers, and supportive parents.), it was a great success.
The Manson Knowledge team took 10th place in a tournament that featured past State contenders.
The Manson Knowledge Bowl team wants to thank the administration, faculty, staff, and community for all their help in making this tournament a memorable experience for all.
