Day School Preps for Academic Bowl

On April 19, Evansville Day School will be competing in the area Senior Academic Bowl. Fifteen Upper School students will represent the school as five teams, competing in the Literature, Social Studies, Fine Arts, Math, and Science. This year’s topic is “Hoosier Heritage” and each topic focuses on people, places, history, and politics that connect the subject to the state of Indiana. The students independently study the given topic and prepare as a team for the competition.
The Academic Bowl is sponsored by the Indiana Association of School Principals with the goal of promoting scholastic competition among the students of Indiana. Across the state over 250 public and private schools participate in regional competitions. The schools compete in a division based on student population. State-wide there are over 60 schools in the same division as Day School. In area competitions, held simultaneously all over the state on April 19, five teams in each subject area will prove their abilities and quality for the state competition to be held at Purdue University on May 7.
Day School has a long history of championship teams. The banners hanging in the Upper School halls are for two first place state champions earned in History and Science. On the walls are many more (too many to count) wooden plaques in the shape of the state of Indiana that represent runner up or 3rd place positions at state.
It has been a great honor over the last 15 years to have the opportunity to be the Academic Coach and work with the great young women and men who put in long hours and show great competitive spirit as a part of these teams. It is a spectator sport! You are invited to experience the excitement and support your Day School teams on April 19 at Central High School. Competition starts at 5:00 pm.  See you there!
