SCOE’s Palmiter School Wins Annual Sacramento County Academic Bowl

Students participating in special education, community, and continuation school programs used their knowledge about biotechnology, as well as quick thinking skills, while competing at the 6th Annual Sacramento County Academic Bowl.

The theme for the competition was “A World Transformed:  Biotechnology.”  The event was held December 18 at Rosemont High School, in the Sacramento City Unified School District.

Leo A. Palmiter Jr. /Sr. High School from the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) won top honors and earned the perpetual trophy. Daylor High School, Elk Unified School District, and North Area Community School, SCOE, finished second and third respectively. Also participating were two other SCOE schools, Elinor Lincoln Hickey Jr. / Sr. High School and Gerber Jr./Sr. High School.

The Sacramento County Academic Bowl is an annual competition for community, continuation and special education school teams involving a game show style event where students answer questions based on a theme and also present a “live” PowerPoint presentation.

Students spent eight weeks in class and after school preparing for this demanding competition. In addition to mastering the academic content, which is based on California’s content standards, students also learn about teamwork, computer and presentation skills, goal setting, and leadership.
