Thirty-three teams from Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio signed up for the 2016-2017 CORN BELT 7TH/8TH GRADE THINKING CAP QUIZ BOWL so we will be awarding a trophy and ribbons for 1st place in both 7th grade and 8th grade. Congratulations to our winning teams on a contest well taken! We hope they and all the rest had a good time and learned a bit in the process.

Winning 1st place in 7th grade is the team from Chesterton Middle School in Chesterton, Indiana with a nice 1150.

A super score of 1199 means that the team from Fishers Junior High in Fishers, Indiana won 1st place bragging rights in the 8th grade pool.

We will mail out the trophies and ribbons after Thanksgiving.
