Academic Derby

Academic DerbyAcademic Derby is a scholastic competition done in quiz-show format.  Teams of students from Onslow County Schools complete to earn points by answering questions.  The matches are taped in a studio located in Southwest High School and shown over local cable systems.  We will be competing in Three matches and if we win we will be elegable for the play off rounds.  The matches will be played from January through March. The matches will be prodcast on channel 10 or you may view them on Onslow County Schools website.

The Academic Derby team of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. We meet during A/A on Fridays which is the Schools Club Day. We will also meet after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:15-4:15.  During this period, our team practices procedures for the matches, example questions using Campbell's middle school quiz book along with the quiz bowl computer program, and discusses team concepts.  An important objective of Academic Derby is to show proof of educational growth in our students.
