Onekama School Hosts 5th & 6th Grade
Manistee County Quiz Bowl Competition

In a test of wit and quick reflexes, Manistee County schools faced off on March 8 and March 10 at Onekama Consolidated Schools for the annual Fifth and Sixth Grade Quiz Bowl competition.

First place for the fifth grade competition was awarded to “Demeuse’s Dominators” from Kennedy Elementary. First place in the sixth grade competition went to Onekama Elementary School’s team “Bucket of Brains.”

Manistee County Quiz Bowl has a long history. The first contest was held at Manistee Junior High in 1988. Preliminary events are held at each local school, and only one team from each school advances to the final event.

Students must correctly answer questions from all core curriculum subjects. Some changes have taken place in recent years on how students prepare for the competition. For many years, questions were taken from available trade books and written by coaches. Students were given study guides before the event, but teachers and coaches found that this could lead to a good deal of memorizing.

Now, questions for the Quiz Bowl competition are purchased from a company specializing in Quiz Bowls. They are not seen by any coach or moderator prior to the competition. Therefore, students must fully prepare for all subject matter that may appear in the competition
