Knowledge Bowl students from Jacobson Elementary brought home three first place trophies, one second place trophy and two third place trophies for the season. They competed at home and traveled to Mora and Pine City for their meets.

The students took a written test for each competition and were then power-ranked into classrooms where they competed in three oral rounds of questions, which were selected from all disciplinary areas.

These students were dedicated to practicing and studying for their meets, according to Knowledge Bowl coordinators Sue Karvonen and Lori Ann Nelson.
