COTTONWOOD The Prairie High School Knowledge Bowl Team will be hosting the monthly meet for the region Monday, March 7, 6:30 p.m., in the Prairie Junior Senior High School Cafeteria. Teams from seven area schools will be in attendance.
Typical turnout is 14-22 teams of five-to-six members each team. A meet consists of three rounds of 20 questions with a big venture question at the end of each round that includes multiple questions and answers about a select topic. Questions cover many subjects including history, math, science, music, current events, politics and sports trivia.
Table judges are needed for the meet from 6:20 to 8:30 p.m. A table judge holds up a sign if their team answers the questions correctly.
Recently, Prairie’s team traveled to Whitworth University in Spokane to participate in Inland Northwest Science Bowl. The winning team of this event qualifies for the National Science Bowl near Washington DC. The Prairie team managed two of six matches. Most teams were from larger schools in the Inland Northwest. Prairie won matches against Highland of Craigmont and Lake City of Coeur d’Alene. They lost matches to Timberlake High School (by two points), Moscow, Coeur d’Alene Charter (CC), and also to Lakeside of Washington. The four teams that Prairie lost to all made it to the finals. Prairie scored 18 points against CC, the eventual winning team that qualified for the National Science Bowl.
Prairie coach is Laurie Karel.
