My son's Scholarship Challenge team won the final round today (he's the second from right)! Their record is better than almost all of their school's sports teams....and now that I think about it, since they never lost a single round, it's the best record of all their school's teams this year.
Scholarship Challenge is a 24-school academic competition that's been around in the northern PA and southern NY area for about 30 years. It's similar to the "It's Academic"- and "Quiz Bowl"-type competitions. Wellsboro has never won; all three of the other schools in today's finals had won at least once. Today's first round score -- 220-50 and second round -- 200-10.
Congratulations to Wes, Ryan, Ean, Nick, and Andy!
The team will be representing a four-county area at the Pennsylvania State Academic Competition in Harrisburg in early May. We're confident they'll go all the way, perhaps even to a national championship (a mother can hope, can't she?).
