CMS Quiz Bowl

On March 19th, Chadron Middle School hosted it's 3rd annual Quiz Bowl competition.  Schools that were in attendance included: Chadron, Sidney, Bridgeport, Hay Springs, Morrill, Gordon/Rushville, Gering, and Mitchell.  Participating students engaged in three rounds of academic competition that tested their knowledge in math, history, geography, current events, science, fine arts, English, and sports.

The majority of competition was held in classrooms at Chadron Middle School, where CMS teachers served as question facilitators, score keepers, and judges.  The championship rounds were held at the Chadron High School auditorium, where students were on "The Big Stage" to compete for the title.

The 7th grade championship round saw Gering vs. Sidney.  Sidney won the round, but Gering fought hard to make it interesting.  The 8th grade championship round pitted Chadron vs. Sidney.  Again, Sidney took home the gold, but Chadron staged a tremendous comeback, but came up short by just five points, which equates to one question.

Chadron Middle School would like to thank all of the students and coaches that attended our quiz bowl. The students were great and we hope that everyone had a lot of fun.
