2010-2011 Optimist Brain Bowl Coming Soon!

It's KNOW Fun!

Invitations and registration forms will be emailed and/or mailed on approximately October 1, 2010. The 2011 South Region Tournament date has been set. We are currently working with high schools in the other regions to confirm tournament dates. Typically these schools do not confirm space for us until their school activity calendars are in place. Although these dates are subject to minor change, please keep Saturdays in mid-January through February in mind as you plan for the Optimist Brain Bowl.

The Optimist Brain Bowl is an academic competition open to Colorado Wyoming middle school students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Students form teams and demonstrate their knowledge of a variety of subjects in a format modeled after the GE College Bowl television program that ran from 1959-1970.

All Colorado/Wyoming public, private and home-schooled 6th, 7th and 8th grade students are invited to form teams and participate.

All team registrations must be be postmarked by December 1, 2010. Registration per school is limited to 3 teams per grade level, nine teams total. Should the tournaments fill before December 1, teams will be accepted in the order in which paid registrations are received.
