On Friday, May 17th, East Rockaway Junior High School held its 2nd Annual Social Studies Quiz Bowl. The competition consisted of three teams: 6th grade, 7th grade, and 8th grade. Last year’s winning team was the 8th grade who narrowly beat the underdog 6th graders. Last year’s 7th grade came in last. To become a Quiz Bowl contestant, you have to take a qualifying test. This test is about 30 questions and consists of a variety of questions. Topics include general geography and world history trivia. Each team consists of 6 players.

This year’s Quiz Bowl winner was the 7th grade! They were able to beat the 8th grade team by about 90 points.  After being a little shaky in the first half of the competition, the 7th grade went on to have a perfect first half. The Golden Globe is now going to be in Ms. Kenny’s Room with “2024” written on it. In an email sent to the winners, Ms. Kenny said, “I am sooooo proud of all of you! I could cry!!!” and “YES!!! The golden globe is ours!!” Congrats 7th Grade on this major accomplishment!!
