Knowledge Bowl

What is the Washington State Knowledge Bowl?

Each of the nine Educational Service Districts in Washington State hold regional Knowledge Bowl competitions. Regional competitions are held between November and early March. Each region's coaches decide the format that will be used in their respective areas and how many competitions will be held.

The regional tournaments that determine which teams will advance to the state tournament typically take place in February or early March. The number of teams each ESD region is allotted for the state tournament varies with the number of schools that compete at each division (WIAA classification) in each ESD region. The top 18 teams in each division (top 9 in 1B division) advance to the state tournament.

The Knowledge Bowl Team at Seton finished their second season with a trip to the Knowledge Bowl District Meet held at Lower Columbia College in Longview, WA, February 22nd, 2016.  The Seton Knowledge Bowl team in their final round went into overtime and won!  The team ended up taking 4th place in their division.
