Rotarians victorious at 2023 Knowledge Bowl
Seven teams battled through two rounds of questions at the 2023 Knowledge Bowl Wednesday, March 1, 2023. The Rotary Club (27), Lion's Club (26), 9th/10th graders (23), Soroptimists ((22), Kiwanis (19), 11th/12th graders (19), and 8th graders (15) then had to decide how many of their points to bet on the final question.
Three teams bet it all and answered correctly. Three teams bet everything but didn't know Canada is the country with the longest shoreline. And one team knew the Canada was the answer but only bet five points.
