Student teams compete for the PSD 2022 Knowledge Bowl champion title

Answering questions about mathematics, language arts, geography, history and biology, student teams from the PSD’s four comprehensive high schools faced off in the 2022 Poudre School District Knowledge Bowl championship on March 30, 2022.

About 50 high-achieving students competed on teams from Poudre, Fort Collins, Fossil Ridge and Rocky Mountain High Schools in the Jeopardy-like tournament that focuses on academic questions. School teams were made up of about 10 students each. The tournament was hosted by the PSD Gifted and Talented program and included PSD curriculum facilitators as judges.

Fossil Ridge took first place in the competition, followed by Rocky in second, Poudre (the 2021 champions) in third and Fort Collins in fourth place. 

Fossil Ridge also won the 2022 Colorado Knowledge Bowl state championship held recently during spring break. After the two-day online competition that included teams from 50 schools, Fossil’s team bested the second-place team by 38 points for the championship title. Fossil also won the 2022 Governor’s Cup - a prestigious award given to the team, regardless of school classification, with the highest score after 10 rounds of tournament play. 

Congratulations to these FRHS Knowledge Bowl team state champions!
