Community lunch features Knowledge Bowl

Glencoe-Silver Lake students and community members continued to team up at the district’s community schools lunch Thursday with a round of Knowledge Bowl play. 
 
The Lincoln Junior High Knowledge Bowl members showed visitors the ropes in a 15-question round with topics ranging from revolutionary silversmiths to states of matter. 
 
All in attendance at the lunch got a sample of the written round of play before a few lucky community members were pulled up for the oral rounds. 
 
Coach Vicky Harris explained the Knowledge Bowl team was founded back when Glencoe and Silver Lake schools merged. 
 
In the bowl, teams of six compete with buzzers as tools in an effort to be the first one with the correct answer. Unlike other sports, Harris said, team members play every minute of a meet.
