Metro Middle Grades Knowledge Bowl (MGKB) is a season of academic competitions (after-school meets that take place at middle schools around the Twin Cities), where students answer questions about history, literature, mathematics, science, current events, and everything in between.
During a meet, teams of 6 begin with the written round, where they work cooperatively to complete a multiple-choice test. Based on their team’s written round score, they’re placed into rooms where teams of 5 face off against 2 other teams to answer questions read by a KB coach or volunteer.
The MGKB Season includes an optional Kick-Off Meet, two Regular Season Meets, one Regional Meet, and an optional Statewide Meet.
Registration fees are based on Metro ECSU membership status. To find out if your school/district is a member, please see the updated membership list.
Kick-Off Meet (optional): $40/team + BOGO (two teams for the price of one)
Regular Season: Metro ECSU Member: $120 per team / Non-Member: $210 per team
