It was the first year for a Home- school Team to enter, and we won 3rd Place in the Truman Trivia Bowl at the Truman Library last night. They accepted up to 10 teams for this annual contest, and Meggar noted there was only one other girl in the room. There were five rounds of questions pertaining to the executive branch, legislative branch, judicial branch, media in politics, and a final round with cartoons, photo ID of political figures, and a voice recognition challenge.
1st place = Rock Bridge High School, Columbia, Mo
2nd place = Rockhurst High School, Kansas City
3rd place = Homeschool Team, St. Joseph, Mo
