Senior High Knowledge Bowl

Metro Senior High Knowledge Bowl (SHKB) is a season of academic competitions where students answer questions about history, literature, mathematics, science, current events, and everything in between. Meets take place after school at high schools around the Twin Cities.

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 3 teams of 4 compete 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.

Senior High KB Practice Questions

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.
