Quiz Bowl

On February 22nd, 14 students from 5th grade competed in the Quiz Bowl.  The tournament is hosted by ESU9 and the goal is to expand the horizons of area students through acquiring the skill of quick recall of general knowledge facts.  The students prepared by practicing weekly in the December.  They study maps, read different types of books, brush up on all core subject areas and watch the news to try to be ready for the event.  This year there were over 400 elementary students who participated.   Quiz bowl teams are made up of 6 players and an alternate. We have two teams that go, Hawthorne Black and Hawthorne Purple. Great job Hawthorne 5th Graders!
