Scholars Bowl Team

2017-2018 Scholars Bowl Team
2017-2018 Scholars Bowl Team

Scholars Bowl is an academic team which competes in four tournaments against other area schools during the regular season. A moderator asks students questions from many fields of knowledge including math, science, history, geography, literature, current events, sports, and popular culture. Each team plays four members at a time, and each team member has a buzzer. The object is to be the first person to buzz in with the right answer. If no one buzzes in before five seconds is up, the moderator will go on to the next question. If a person buzzes in with the right answer, his or her team has the chance to answer two more bonus questions.  The top four schools in each division go on to the Super Tournament in March. 

To qualify for the SMS scholars bowl team, students must maintain an 85 average in their academic classes and display exemplary behavior in the classroom.

Scholars Bowl members practice each Wednesday during the season from 2:45-4:00 PM.
