Our 2013 teams included 13 children, 4 coaches and 2 resource people who provide materials and questions to help the teams and coaches in their studying! The students practiced hard as a group on Sunday, and on their own throughout the week. The teams are part of the Great Lakes Bible Bowl which is a scripture competition between teams of young people from area churches of Christ in Michigan. There are three divisions:
♦ Primary (3rd through 5th Grades)
♦ Junior (6th – 8th Grades)
♦ Senior (9th – 12th Grades).
Each competition consists of rounds of 20 multiple choice questions per division.
At each competition, the first three teams in each division are awarded trophies.
At the end of the "season" the top three Senior teams are awarded scholarship money to Rochester College.*
Also, at the end of the "season" the top three teams in each division are invited to compete in the state finals, with the first place teams receiving a week of Summer Camp at Michigan Christian Youth Camp.*
Overall in the 2012 season, the
Junior team placed 1st!
Primary team A placed 3rd
Primary team B placed 1st
As a result of their outstanding season, all teams went to the State Competition on March 18, 2012, where the Primary team B won 2nd place medals!
WAY TO GO TEAM!!
