Sagicor Knowledge Bowl kicked off last Wednesday at the University College of the Cayman Islands (UCCI).
In the first competition between John Gray High School and Cayman Prep High School, John Gray was unable to appear so Cayman Prep won the round by default.
Grace Christian Academy won the competition against Cayman Brac High School.
Cayman Brac showed their skills and took the lead by winning the game score 210 to170.
The audience and even the coaches admitted the questions were a bit tough but students did a fine job in answering all.
Sagicor Knowledge Bowl is the first competition of its kind which challenges high schools students in their last five years of school to compete against each other in a team-based competition.
Questions are based on Cayman history/culture, social studies, physics, chemistry, mathematics, Caribbean history and Spanish.
The competition continues for several weeks, cumulating in the semi- finals on 5 and 6 March and the finals on 12 March. Semi-finals and finals will be broadcasted live on CITN Cayman 27.
