Students from Dunedin Highland Middle School have advanced to the next round of the Pinellas County Schools' annual Quiz Bowl. The brainy challenge will be held on Thursday, May 16.
Imagine "Jeopardy!" without the big-money prizes or national viewing audience. That pretty much sums up the intensity and difficult questions posed to the kids competing in Quiz Bowl.
Last Thursday was the preliminary round and featured teams from Azalea, Bay Point Middle, Carwise, Dunedin Highland, Largo, Morgan Fitzgerald, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor, Sanderlin, Seminole and Thurgood Marshall.
The school teams that advanced on to the next round are: Palm Harbor Middle, Safety Harbor Middle, Bay Point Middle, Seminole Middle, Dunedin Highland Middle, and Azalea Middle.
The competition will take place at the district Administration Building in Largo, 301 Fourth St., Largo.
