BRAINERD — Brainerd High School advanced two teams to the State Knowledge Bowl Tournament Thursday, April 13, and Friday, April 14, at Cragun’s Resort on Gull Lake.

Each team consists of five members who answer written and oral questions designed to challenge the students based off of secondary education curriculum in all fields, including mathematics, science, English literature, the fine arts, social studies as well as current events. Students work together to answer questions that test their recall, problem solving and critical thinking skills.

Thursday the students will compete against teams from across the state in the written round. The round consists of 60 multiple choice questions and the scores will determine the seating for Friday’s oral rounds. The oral rounds consist of a series of 45 questions with points awarded to whichever team answers the question first. The oral rounds are open to the public.

Last year Brainerd placed two teams in the Top 10, the only school to do so.

Headline News from the Brainerd Dispatch

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
