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 Essex defeated schools from around the state to claim the title and the right to represent Vermont in national competition.

Essex Surges to Secure Second Consecutive State Title
Essex High School captured the Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl state championship at the University of Vermont on March 24th, surging past Hanover for a 415-355 in a back-and-forth title game. The lead changed hands 10 times in the last round of the final, the last coming as Essex mounted a 100 to -10 run to take control en route to its second straight state title and fifth in six years. The final capped an exciting final day of matches that saw six of the 12 results decided by 60 points or fewer, including South Burlington 323-322 overtime win over Burr and Burton in the first round and CVU's 355-350 win over Burlington in the quarterfinals. Essex defeated Lyndon and Middlebury to reach the title game and Hanover topped CVU in the other semifinal. Middlebury won four matches on the day, capturing the second-tier Medlar Cup and knocking off Mt. Mansfield in the quarterfinals before its loss to Essex.
