DuBois, PA – Quick… in 1776, Patrick Henry said he wanted either death or what? What group of snakes generally leave a pair of wounds on victims? You might not know the answer to these questions, but some of our students sure do!
(By the way, the answer was “Give me liberty or give me death” and vipers.)
Groups of students from 7 area schools getting ready to show off their knowledge at the annual Scholastic Challenge.
This year, teams will be competing from DuBois, DuBois Central Catholic, Brockway, Brookville, Clearfield, Punxsutawney, and St. Marys.
Carol Foltz from Coldwell Banker Developac Realty, the organizer of the Junior and Senior Scholastic Challenges, says this will be the 22nd year for the Junior and the 32nd year for the Senior Scholastic Challenge.
The public is encouraged to attend, and it’s absolutely free. Come and cheer on the students and find out how clever they really are!
The Junior Challenge is up first. The junior groups will compete this Wednesday, Feb. 20, starting at 6:30 in Hiller Auditorium at Penn State DuBois.
The competitions last about 3 hours, with plenty of quick rounds and a break for refreshments before the final few sets of questions.
The Senior Challenge will be Wednesday, March 6, also at 6:30 in Hiller Auditorium at Penn State DuBois.
The Junior and Seniors Scholastic Challenges are brought to you locally by Sunny 106, Johnson Motors, The City of DuBois, Senator Joe Scarnati, Advanced Disposal, Kurtz Brothers, and Carol Foltz of Coldwell Banker Developac Realty.
