Local Academic Superbowl teams are studying “The Glory that was Greece” in anticipation of upcoming competitions.

Through Indiana Academic Super Bowl contests, teams of students compete with other schools by answering questions about a particular era, this year ancient Greece. Topics within the era include English, science, social studies, mathematics and interdisciplinary rounds. The senior division also includes a fine arts round.

Local high schools with senior division teams are Elkhart Christian Academy, Northridge, NorthWood, Penn, Goshen, Concord, Elkhart Central, Fairfield and Jimtown, according to the website for Indiana Association of School Principals, which organizes the program.

Local junior high and middle schools with junior division teams are Bethany Christian Middle School, Concord, Fairfield, Elkhart Christian Academy, Goshen, Jimtown, North Side, Northridge, Pierre Moran, Schmucker, Grissom and West Side.

Invitational contests are occurring for senior division teams through late March. Invitationals for junior division teams begin later this month and are scheduled into early April.

Area contests for senior division teams are set for April 16, while junior division area contests will be April 27.

Junior division state winners are chosen through the area contests. In the senior division, top teams from the area contest go on to state finals May 4.

Maui County voters will decide in the next few weeks whether to ban the cultivation of genetically engineered organisms, at least temporarily. A “yes” vote on the Nov. 4 ballot initiative would require large multinational companies that research new varieties of corn and soybeans in Maui to stop farming until they are able to prove their methods are safe. This could upend global agriculture giant Monsanto’s research pipeline for new varieties of corn and soybeans. (AP Photo/The Maui News, Matthew Thayer)
