CCC Quiz Bowl Results

West Carroll High School won top honors in the 29th Annual Academic Quiz Bowl hosted by Clinton Community College on Thursday, December 5, 2013.  Central Community High School of DeWitt won second place honors, with Clinton High School defeating Bellevue Marquette High School to round out the top spots.  Prince of Peace College Preparatory defeated Easton Valley High School to win the Consolation bracket.

Teams from area high schools competed for the top award, answering questions in topics including history, science, language, literature, government, music, art, sports and current events.  Begun in 1985 as a question and answer/fact and trivia competition, it was established with two goals in mind; to provide a fun, informative and entertaining learning experience for area students, and to provide exposure for the superior scholastic abilities of our area’s high school students.

Each year, Clinton Community College awards trophies to the school teams placing first through third in the championship bracket.  In addition, the Paul B. Sharar Foundation awards a $600 scholarship to the winning high school, and a $400 scholarship to the runner-up, to be used by graduates of those schools attending Clinton Community College.  

High school teams participating in the 2013 Academic Quiz Bowl include Bellevue High School, Bellevue-Marquette High School, Calamus-Wheatland High School, Camanche High School, Central Community High School of DeWitt, Clinton High School, Fulton High School, Easton Valley High School, Prince of Peace College Preparatory Academy and West Carroll High School.
