Onekama Hosts Quiz Bowl for Grades 5 & 6

OCS Hosts Quiz Bowl Competition


On Tuesday, March 12 and Wednesday, March 13, Onekama Consolidated Schools hosted the Manistee County fifth and sixth grade Quiz Bowl competition.


Teams from all county schools were represented, and students had the chance to showcase their knowledge of literature, mathematics, social studies, science, and the arts over two days of competition.


“We were happy to host this academic contest,” commented Onekama principal Gina Hagen. “Giving students the opportunity to be celebrated for their academic successes in addition to their athletic successes is a high priority for all schools.”


Many people gave their time to help make the event a success – from the teachers who prepared students in the classroom, parents who asked questions over meals at home, and the students themselves who gave up time at lunch, recess, and after school to study. 


In the fifth grade competition, first place was awarded to “The Mindsteins” of Onekama Elementary. 

The Onekama sixth grade team took third place in their competition
