Education makes a people easy to lead but difficult to drive: easy to govern, but impossible to enslave.

Knowledge is of two kinds: We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information on it.

Scholastic Bowl

20th Annual International Scholastic Bowl, Saturday, November 13

Every November, the Peoria Area World Affairs Council hosts 24 high school teams from across Central Illinois. These students meet in Bradley Hall for a test of knowledge about the world around us - geography, politics, economics, culture, history, literature, music, and so much more. This unique competition offers not only bragging rights for those students who stay current with the news, it also offers scholarship awards to the top finishing teams!

If your school wishes to compete, inquire about eligibility with the Executive Director. Spots fill quickly - don't miss your school's chance to compete.
