High School 'History Bowl" October 27 on Campus

October 2, 2008

Lindenwood University’s history, political science and television programs will team up again this fall to host a televised History Bowl competition among teams from area high schools. Participating schools are still being sought, although currently five schools have signed on.

The competition will air the week of Oct. 27 (with the finals broadcast live on Sunday, Nov. 2) on LUTV, the higher education cable channel for St. Charles County, which is on channel 989 in Charter Communications’ digital tier.

The show will be in a television quiz show format hosted by history professor Jeff Smith. All participating students will be offered scholarships to Lindenwood with increasing value for students whose teams advance farther into the competition.

The program will be filmed in high definition inside the Emerson Black Box Theatre at Lindenwood’s new J. Scheidegger Center for the arts, which is also home to the school’s new Charter Communications LUTV HD Studio.

Currently, teams have signed up from Webster Groves High School, Warrenton High School, Fort Zumwalt West High School, Francis Howell High School and Washington High School. Competition organizer Kris Runberg Smith said there are spaces for eight teams in the competition.

In addition to the scholarships, all students in the competition will receive a tournament T-shirt, a DVD of the broadcast, lunch and various parting gifts. The winning team will be awarded the invitational trophy.
