Middle schoolers go head to head in W.Va history bowl

West Virginia

Eighth graders from West Virginia braved the snow to compete in the 10th Annual West Virginia History Bowl.

From “what’s the largest ski resort?” to being asked about notable abolitionists, over 30 teams competed at Spring Mills High School March 1 in various places throughout the school.

Tommy Nester is a teacher at Keyser Middle School who returned to the bowl this year. His team has managed to compete as a state finalist for the past five years.

“You have a proud teacher moment, they really make you proud seeing the growth of the student and how they go from not knowing as much to dominating questions,” Nester said.

During this years competition, 19 teams competed with the possibility of heading to Charleston, West Virginia April 30.
