Students from eight local Jr. High schools (grades 7 & 8) participated in a Quiz Bowl Tournament on November 13th at the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center. The following schools participated in this event: Clay, East, Minford, New Boston, Northwest, Notre Dame, Valley and Wheelersburg. Each team played two matches to determine which two teams would advance to the Championship Round. The matches include questions in ten different categories including: Math, Science, English, Social Studies, Literature, Current Events, Fine Arts, Health, General Knowledge and History. The final round is the Lightning Round where students buzz in to answer questions from a variety of topics.
Minford and Clay were the final two teams playing in the Championship Round with Minford winning the Championship and Clay winning the Runner-Up Award. Theresa Havens is the Quiz Bowl coach for the Minford Jr. High team and Cindy Parkes is the coach for the Clay team.
