ELP Quiz Bowl Coming Up! PDF Print E-mail

It’s May, time for the Soaring High Quiz Bowl; a competition for Extended Learning Program (ELP) students (3rd-5th & 6th-8th grade).  The competition originated in the 90’s and rotates among schools hosting the event each year. This year, 3rd-5th graders compete May 10th (Monday) at Lone Tree. May 14th (Friday), 6th-8th graders compete at West Liberty.

The Quiz Bowl consists of 3 rounds where teams of 6 students accumulate points while competing against 6-7 other schools.  Rounds consist of questions from 5 topics (this year's include Iowa Tourist Attractions, author Roald Dahl, Earthquakes, Winter Olympics & History of Mathematics), resource questions (answers in dictionary, 2010 World Almanac, world maps, phone book & the Des Moines Register newspaper) and Brain Teasers.  Students begin researching, studying and practicing for the Quiz Bowl about a month before the big day.

Awards are presented for 1st & 2nd place schools for each grade level; as well as, for overall school winner. This is a FUN DAY for the students (and a chance to show off their hard work)! Renee Sieren is the ELP teacher for the 3rd-6th graders & Erin Suter is the teacher for the 7th and 8th graders.  GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
