Martino Vikings

Scholastic Bowl is an academic team that competes under the umbrella of the Illinois Elementary School Association (IESA).  Our season runs from January to the second week of May.   Scholastic Bowl is more than just trivia.   We compete in social studies, science, math, language arts, and miscellaneous topics.

Announcements about try-outs will appear in November.   Try-outs will be held in December with the announcement of the 2020 team made before Winter Break.  15 - 18 students will be selected for the Scholastic Bowl team.  Team is made up of a mix of 7th and 8th graders.  The team meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, December 18th from 3:00 -3:20 in Room 26. Students will be given a tentative practices and matches calendar and the uniform order form. IESA rules require a team uniform which usually consists of a t-shirt.  Uniforms are ordered online and must be completed by January 4, 2020.   The first practice will be January 10, 2020.   Practices are usually on Gold days after school from 3:00 to 4:15.

Any questions about our competitive and FUN team, please email Mrs. Haring!
