02/06/2018: "SJI Schools Big Winners in Knowledge Bowl"
The 24th annual Knowledge Bowl was held Monday, (02-05-2018) at the San Juan Community Theatre. Sponsored by the San Juan Public Schools Foundation, the family fun began with the Friday Harbor High School Jazz Band, and the battle of knowledge began as moderator Brent Snow read the questions for the team members to try and come up with the correct answers -it ended with the Soroptimist Club just bumping out the rest of the participants, and the evening concluded with the presentation of a check from the sponsoring foundation for $127,4040.00 to the SJI School District.
The teams were made up of middle and high school students and San Juan Island’s four local service organizations: Kiwanis , Lions, Rotary and Soroptimist , all working hard to answer a host of tricky questions on a wide range of topics -while dressed in fun costumes.
Speaking of which, the 8th graders clearly won the applause of the audience with their orange getup, and
Rotary wowed the crowd to take the adult best costumes with their prisoner and jail guard garb.
See you all next year for the 25th -Silver- Knowledge Bowl.
