Take your kids and hit the road!
Academic Bowl is a great opportunity to go one on one against your cross county rivals. Students prepare for competition by honing their study skills and in the process they learn! Academic Bowl gives your students to the opportunity to receive recognition for what they know.
The OAAC offers Academic Bowl opportunities for students in grades 4-10.
A school may enter multiple teams in any level of academic bowl. A separate entry fee is required for each team.
Questions for all levels of OAAC academic bowl are based on current curriculum and come from a pool of question writers using 80% current adopted text books & PASS/Common Core standards with the remaining 20% coming from general academic bowl and cultural literacy type questions.
The list of who you will play for entered teams will be posted on the OAAC web site the first week of October. A link to the pairing information will be placed on this page and on the OAAC home page.
4th Grade Academic Bowl, 5th Grade Academic Bowl and Froshmore Series competitions will work within their group once pairings have been made to establish their schedule and locations.
If your group decides (unanimously) a date will not work for you, your group may change the date. If a unanimous decision cannot be made about changing the date, it will revert to the set date.
