More than 100 students from 11 Region 5 high schools assembled at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, March 9, at Central Lakes College in Staples for the Regional Senior High Knowledge Bowl Meet.

Teams from Aitkin, Brainerd, Henning, Little Falls, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Nevis, Pillager, Pequot Lakes, Pierz, Pine River-Backus and Staples-Motley will take part in the interdisciplinary academic competition.

The top four teams from the meet will represent Region 5 at the 2017 Minnesota Service Cooperative State Meet on April 6-7.

During a Knowledge Bowl meet, teams of five work together to quickly solve questions related to all areas of learning typical of secondary educational programs. Meets are conducted in rounds, beginning with one written-question round and three to five oral-question rounds. No team is eliminated during a meet and every team participates in every round.

The National Joint Powers Alliance coordinates Region 5 junior and senior high Knowledge Bowl programs.
