Everett students competing in ocean quiz bowl

Two Everett high schools plan to send teams to this year's Orca Bowl, the state's marine science competition held annually at the University of Washington.
Two teams from Everett's Ocean Education Research Academy will compete, and Everett High School will send one team.
This year, the rapid-fire academic competition has attracted 20 teams from 13 high schools across the state.
The winning team will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Milwaukee in April to compete against 24 other regional champions in the National Ocean Sciences Bowl.
All students in Washington state's competition receive prizes and can also qualify for scholarships and internships.
Orca Bowl is scheduled to take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 23 at the UW's Fishery Sciences Building, 1122 NE Boat St., Seattle. Teams will face challenging questions about the biology, chemistry, geology, physics, history and economics of the ocean.
Orca Bowl is hosted by Washington Sea Grant and the UW College of the Environment. More information is available at
The National Ocean Sciences Bowl is a program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, based in Washington, D.C.
Through this educational forum, the program strives to encourage and support the next generation of marine scientists, policymakers, teachers, explorers, researchers, technicians, environmental advocates and informed citizens.
