The middle school Scholastic Bowl Team at Keith Country Day will join 95 other teams in Chicago for the Middle School National Championship Tournament at the end of April.
The top teams from around the country will face off with questions from middle school curriculum, sports, pop culture, and current events during the April 26 and April 27 event.
The team's members are Kristie Bodak, Arib Bari, Spencer Folkerts, Jayden Knudsen, Rebecca Lisk, Shelby Martin, Missy McKillip, Grant Nagel, Robert Raleigh, Audrey Roh, and Haley Shaw. They are coached by Mrs. Kristin Burns, who says of the invitation, "This team has faced some tough competition with great schools this season. I know they are excited to make their first appearance at a national competition."
The Keith high school team has placed third in the Illinois High School Association's State Finals for the last three years.
