Academic Challenge Bowl

Program for middle school students - Gr. 7/8

Academic Challenge Bowl (ACB) is an academic team competition for students in grades 7 and 8, and is an excellent way to nurture, recognize, and celebrate the academic strengths of students. Like sports programs for the athletically talented, ACB provides a competitive structure for those students who are academically talented.

ACB is structured similarly to MasterMinds, the high school quiz bowl program. There are toss-up questions and bonus questions on a wide variety of subject areas. Matches take place after school at the designated host school. The season consists of eight games plus play-offs leading to a championship match.
