Scholastic Bowl has been an IHSA-sanctioned activity since 1986. In Scholastic Bowl teams representing schools match wits on subjects including science and math, art and music, social studies (history, geography, religion, government), and literature (including mythology). If you enjoy the TV show Jeopardy! and board games like Trivial Pursuit, or even if you just pride yourself on your strength in any of these subjects, then this activity is for you! The moderator/coach will be Dr. Jim Lothian, an enthusiast for knowledge in all forms.
Northridge will be competing in and traveling to Scholastic Bowl tournaments against other schools leading up to the state tournament in March. A team of at least 5 and up to 15 players will be fielded at each tournament. Activity members will be expected to put in additional study hours in their special subject(s).
