Student Life

Academic Bowl

Lexington is proud to sponsor a team of students in the Gallaudet University Academic Bowl competition. The Academic Bowl was established in 1997 to promote academic excellence and provide social opportunities to deaf high school students. The competition uses a question-and- answer format that requires general knowledge and quick recall. Categories of knowledge include: Arts and Entertainment; Current Events; Language and Literature; Mathematics; Pop Culture, Leisure, and Sports; Potpourri; and Science and Technology.

Up to 80 teams from across the country compete in four regional competitions. Lexington’s team competes in the East Regional Competition. Each regional competition includes up to 20 teams that participate in a round robin format. The results of the round robin determine the seeding for the final Playoffs on the second day of competition. The top five teams from each region advance to the National Competition at Gallaudet University.
