The Super Bowl of trivia is back.

The 20th annual Knowledge Bowl is Tuesday, Feb. 11 at the Community Theatre, at 7 p.m.

Three student teams (FHMS 8th graders, FHHS freshmen/sophomores and FHHS juniors/seniors) go head-to-head with four local service group teams: Kiwanis, Soroptimists, Lions, and Rotary. The four-person teams will answer tricky trivia questions on a broad range of topics.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the FHHS Jazz Band will perform at 6:45 and again at intermission. The  FHES music class will demonstrate their new ukuleles in the lobby before the event.

Brent Snow, SJI School Board president, will once again emcee the event. The FHMS PTA will offer baked treats in the lobby before and during the event, and there will also be a silent auction.

The Knowledge Bowl is presented each year by the San Juan Public Schools Foundation Board. Through its Phone-a-Thon and Business Partnership Program in the school directory, the Foundation this year has raised over $100,000 to supplement our local public education needs. Since 1994, community support of the SJJPF mission now totals over one million dollars.

Tickets for this fun family event are $5 for adults and $3 for children, and are available at the door the night of the event. Come and cheer on your favorite team.
