Penn and NorthWood high schools will each have several teams competing at the Indiana Academic Super Bowl State Finals May 4 at Purdue University.

Both schools had teams qualify to go to state in area contests held April 16.

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.

Area contests for junior division teams, those in middle school, will be April 27.

Junior division state winners are chosen through the area contests.

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, according to the website for Indiana Association of School Principals, which organizes the program.

Civil rights attorneys said they hope to exonerate the former chairman of a bribery conviction by obtaining unreleased emails from a federal judge reprimanded for sending racist correspondence. Former Montana U.S. District Judge Richard Cebull sentenced Birdinground (“bird-in-ground”) to three years in prison in 2003. The 79-year-old Crow leader had pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a car dealership. When Birdinground sought to retract his plea and go to trial, Cebull rejected the request, a decision upheld on appeal. Cebull resigned last year after an investigation into a racist email he sent involving President Barack Obama. (AP Photo/Billings Gazette, Larry Mayer)
