MPWS Advances in East Regional, Moves to Academic Bowl National Championship

March 13, 2023

Marie Philip/Walden School (MPWS) students represented TLC at the Gallaudet University Youth Programs East Regional Academic Bowl in Kentucky this weekend. MPWS won almost all of its matches and they are moving onto Nationals in April!

The Gallaudet University Academic Bowl was established to foster academic excellence, healthy competition, and sportsmanship among deaf and hard of hearing youth – all while making lifelong friends. Every year, Gallaudet University hosts regional competitions for teams of deaf and hard of hearing high school students.

The Gallaudet University Academic Bowl competition consists of a question and answer game of general knowledge and quick recall. Questions are drawn from the following categories: Arts and Entertainment; Current Events; Language and Literature; Mathematics; Pop Culture, Leisure, and Sports; Potpourri; and Science and Technology.
