HUGHESVILLE, Md. (March 14, 2012)—SMECO recently hosted an online general knowledge quiz for more than 220 students who participated in the 18th Annual Elementary School Knowledge Bowl. Twenty-eight teams of fourth- and fifth-graders from 18 elementary schools in Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary's counties competed in the event.
The Elementary School Knowledge Bowl quiz tested the students' knowledge of mathematics, history, grammar, current affairs, and other subjects. Working in teams of six, competitors used school computers to access an online test created by Regina Greely of St. Mary's County Public Schools to solve problems and answer questions. Teams were given 75 minutes to complete the 75-question quiz. At the conclusion of the competition, SMECO posted the overall results, as well as results by county, on its website.
The Elementary Knowledge Bowl is sponsored by SMECO and the Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary's county school systems.
