Vermont's high school question-and-answer
academic competition for more than 30 years.
Welcome to the home of competitive academics in the state of Vermont. Since the 1983-84 school year, the Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl has been challenging teams of high school students to show their smarts in a fast-paced question-and-answer format. This year teams from around the state are seeking to dethrone champion Essex and earn the right to represent Vermont in national competition.
