Everyone is welcome to try out for Scholars Bowl, but to qualify to be a part of the Scholars Bowl team students will take a test over multiple academic areas (listed above). Students will be selected to the team based upon not only scores from the try-out test bus also based upon classroom behavior (work-ethic, attitude, perserverance, etc.).
Starting in January there will be about two practices and one competition per week. There are only five major competitions in a season, and the season ends in February.
