Toe to toe, team against team, question after question, the fight to win the chapter knowledge bowl plaque has begun. At the knowledge bowl, the chapter members group together to go against each other to be asked questions about the chapter and FFA in general. They try to answer as many questions as possible to win. And once they have gained the victory the whole team will have their names carved into the chapter Knowledge Bowl plaque that hangs in Mrs. Giffing’s classroom.
During the Knowledge bowl, questions were asked to two of the teams, and whichever team had the answer, or thought that they had the answer, buzzed in to try and answer the question. If your team got the question correct, you got the point, if not, the other team had the opportunity to answer the question. If your team wasn’t competing at that time you had the choice to sit and watch the other teams compete, or you could go grab a few snacks.
Questions that were asked during the activity were about FFA, agriculture and facts relating to the Springville chapter officer team. One of the questions that was asked was “How tall is the President, Mallory Murdoch?” We all learned that she is 4’11”!
After a couple rounds of intense knowledge bowl questioning, the winning team was announced. The winning team members were Kameron Talbot, Tim Killpack, Koda Meyers, James Pope, Griffin Meyers, and Jaynee Giffing.
After the students competed against each other, the winning team and the advisors went head to head. Not only did the winning student team beat the other teams, but they also beat the Advisors team which was Mr. Fredrickson, Mrs. Hendrickson, Mrs. Giffing, and our student teacher/advisor Mrs. Hallows.
