Metro Senior High Knowledge Bowl (SHKB) is a season of academic competitions (after-school meets that take place at high 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 5 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 4 face off against 2 other teams to answer questions read by a KB coach or volunteer.
Each school is guaranteed three meets during Regular Season. The top 45 teams will qualify at Subregionals and/or Regionals. The top 6 teams from Regionals will compete at the MN State KB Meet in April.
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.
Metro ECSU Member: $245 per team / Non-Member: $495 per team
A school’s 8th, 9th, and 10th KB teams are FREE; regular pricing begins again for a school’s 11th, 12th, etc.
The following score sheets will be live links to automatically update during each meet. Follow along from anywhere! If you get an error or are asked to sign into your Google account, it means that scores are currently being entered and will be updated soon.

Chris Lenius, this award’s namesake, once said that regardless of which school a player or coach comes from, they’re all our players and all our coaches. The Knowledge Bowl program is built by, and its value is reinforced by, its players. This award is voted on all season, then granted by an anonymous donor to the team that best exemplifies sportspersonship, a competitive spirit, and the love of the game.
2020-2021: Chaska High School – Purple
