Knowledge Bowl / Quiz Bowl information
2016-17_kb_pic.png

Mr. Streit is coaching 3 middle-school Knowledge Bowl teams this upcoming 2017-18 school year.  If you are unfamiliar with Knowledge Bowl, check this web site for more information: http://www.successbeyond.org/KB.htm

Knowledge Bowl is a great extra-curricular activity for students who love trivia, problem-solving, and challenging themselves.  There will be three middle-school teams of seven, so 21 total students will make the squad.  Tryouts for Knowledge Bowl are in early October.  The Knowledge Bowl season runs from November through February.

The cost for joining Knowledge Bowl is $20.00; this helps cover the registration fees.  (There is no cost to try out for Knowledge Bowl.)  Also, each parent must drive their student to the Knowledge Bowl meets or arrange a carpool.  Carpool drivers need to have background checks and permission slips arranged through the LHCS office; Mr. Streit can help you figure out those details.

There are 4 Knowledge Bowl meets this school year.  Knowledge Bowl meets typically begin at 3:30pm and end around 7:00pm, so students will miss part of the 5th hour and all of their 6th hour class on meet days (except for the LHCS meet).  Knowledge Bowl practices are usually before school on Fridays from 8:45-9:15.

Students who try out for Knowledge Bowl, but do not finish in the top 21 can still be on the LHCS Quiz Bowl team (students who make the Knowledge Bowl team can also participate in Quiz Bowl).  The Quiz Bowl season begins in December and consists of three Saturday meets (all registration costs for Quiz Bowl are covered by parents – about $20 per student per meet).
