Urban League of Palm Beach County Students Take Part In Annual State Brain Bowl Academic Competition

Once again, the Urban League of Palm Beach County will be represented at the Annual State Brain Bowl Academic Competition, which will be on March 20.

Our students will take part in history and math competitions, which are designed to motivate students to improve skills in critical reading and mathematics, writing, vocabulary, and coding.

Students prepare for the Brain Bowl for months by reading college-level written works, solving challenging mathematical problems, learning and using advanced vocabulary in writing and speech, and using their computational thinking and programming skills to address issues in their communities.

Since 1985, more than 16,000 students have participated as team members, and more than 700 students have won scholarships donated by Florida’s public and private colleges and universities.

“We’re proud of our students and all of their accomplishments,” said Patrick Franklin, president and CEO of Urban League of Palm Beach County. “We’ll be cheering them on during this competition. Good luck!”
