The 2015 Brain Bowl competition between the Middle Schools in Hernando County fittingly took place on 3/14/15, also known as "Pi"-Day!

Student teams of five Hernando County Middle Schools competed against each other in this competition that contains challenging questions from math, science, literature, history and current events.

After six games with two rounds each, the team from Challenger K-8 School of Science and Mathematics emerged as the winners.

This was the 23rd year, the Rotary Club of Spring Hill has organized this popular event that is free to students, parents, and spectators to attend.  Many local businesses and organizations have sponsored the event to cover the cost any proceeds are applied to the scholarship funds of the Rotary Club of Spring Hill.

Robert (Bob) Gilbert  definitely, no one had to physically exhaust themselves but that is not to say some weren't sweating it!  

Endre Barath, Jr.  It was a great event and everyone enjoyed i

 

Yolanda Cordova-Gilbert  yes, this year was special too because it was the first five digits, 3-14-15, happens only every 100 years!

Joan Whitebook yes, the Brain Bowl has endured the test of time just because it has been a lot of fun for the students and everyone else involved.

Debbie Reynolds that is so true, some  of the things these kids knew amazed me, then again, there were others where I thought, how come they don't know that?
