This year’s Woodward Academy Knowledge Bowl took place on March 11 in the Knight’s gymnasium. The decade long (est. 2006), dorm versus dorm, bracketed competition, tests the students academic prowess. At stakes this year was an all day trip to Kansas City for the entire dorm.
The morning rapid fire session consisted of 10 rounds of six questions that were used to seed the dorms for the afternoon. Once the bracket was created, the dorms battled each other with their minds. What makes Woodward Academy’s knowledge bowl unique is that many of the questions were offered by teachers and taken straight from their classes. In a close final round match, Delta Company beat out Pathfinder Hall to claim the championship.
The campus event took place on the heels of the West Central Activities Conference (WCAC) Academic Bowl. Woodward Academy brought a team of 5 to the event, this year held on Ogden.
