DuBois, PA – For the first time in 32 years, Mother Nature has foiled our plans for the Scholastic Challenge.
The Junior Scholastic Challenge, which was supposed to take place tonight at Penn State DuBois, has been postponed.
Although there’s no official plan for when the challenge could be rescheduled, the organizer Carol Foltz says she’s going to try to make it work somehow.
In the meantime, it’s more important to focus on the safety of the students and families.
Please, if you were planning on attending the Junior Scholastic Challenge, it has been cancelled for tonight and you should not drive to DuBois.
Stay safe and stay at home!

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 has been postponed. We’ll let you know when a new time and date has been rescheduled.
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.
