Sacramento County Academic Bowl
The Sacramento County Academic Bowl is an annual academic competition. Students compete on five member teams with two alternate members per team. The theme for the 2012-13 Academic Bowl is "A World Transformed: Technological Turning Points."
Teams compete in two academic events centered on the theme. The first event is a Super Quiz (Jeopardy style) competition in which students answer questions based on the theme. The second event is a PowerPoint Presentation in which students use a PowerPoint project they developed to deliver a presentation on a specific aspect of the theme.
Team awards are presented at the Academic Bowl Awards Luncheon immediately following the Academic Bowl.
Students spend time in class and after school to prepare for this demanding competition. In addition to mastering the academic content which is based on California's content standards, students also learn about teamwork, computer and presentation skills, goal setting, and leadership.
