The Scholastic Bowl is an IHSA interscholastic competitive activity, where two schools compete to answer questions involving factual knowledge, quick recall, intuitive guessing and many other types of questions. The format is two teams of five individuals who compete both to see what individual can answer a question the quickest, as well as, conferring with all teammates on multi-part questions. This fast-pace competition has students buzz in to give their answers on a Jeopardy-style electronic system. Members practice once a week to compete in SWSC competitions spanning from August to March. Members compete in school invitationals and the annual H-F Scholastic Bowl Invitational. In March, they compete in the IHSA Sectionals and, if the team qualifies, they advance to the IHSA State Competition.
