MAMS Academic Bowl

MAMS Quiz Team: Noah Sheaffer, Eliza Artell, Tyson Bomberger, Rashi Patel, Zoe Handwerk

On May 12, 2021, Eliza Artell, Tyson Bomberger, Zoe Handwerk, Rashi Patel, and Noah Sheaffer represented Middletown Area Middle School in the 2021 Penn State High Achievers Academic Bowl. The Academic Bowl strives to increase awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity through learning facts of various cultures. Students study approximately 700 facts and then test their knowledge as they compete against other schools.

In a typical year, students would compete in-person at Penn State Harrisburg. This year, the teams competed virtually through Zoom and Kahoot. The MAMS team worked extremely hard over the last few months and their preparation paid off. They excelled in all seven rounds of the competition and left with first place after defeating CD East in the championship round!

Congratulations to the team for their hard work, their win, and on representing MAMS and MASD extremely well!
