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.

 A 15-year-old boy, seen sitting on a stretcher center, who stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from San Jose, Calif., to Maui is loaded into an ambulance at Kahului Airport in Kahului, Maui, Hawaii Sunday afternoon, April 20, 2014. The boy survived the trip halfway across the Pacific Ocean unharmed despite frigid temperatures at 38,000 feet and a lack of oxygen, FBI and airline officials said. FBI spokesman Tom Simon in Honolulu told The Associated Press on Sunday night that the boy was questioned by the FBI after being discovered on the tarmac at the Maui airport with no identification.
