|Vermont's high school
academic competition for more than 30 years.
|Welcome to the home of competitive academics in the state of Vermont. Since the 1983-84 school year, the Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl has been challenging teams of high school students to show their smarts in a fast-paced question-and-answer format. This year Burlington bested 23 other schools from around the state to earn the right to represent Vermont in national competition.|

Playoffs at NAQT Nationals
Burlington High School capped its state-championship season with a strong showing at the NAQT National Championship Tournament in Dallas over Memorial Day weekend, riding Sterling Ford's impressive performance to a tie for 53th place in the 272-team event. Burlington went 6-4 in Saturday's preliminary rounds, overcoming a 2-3 start with a strong finish highlighted by a tense 260-210 win over LASA (Texas) D in the last round to decide which team would make the playoffs. Burlington then rolled past Tippecanoe (Ohio) 325-135 in the first elimination round before bowing out in a heartbreaking 235-230 loss to Washington (Mo.) in Round 2. Ford finished as the tournament's second-leading scorer, averaging 88.1 points per game in the preliminary rounds to become the first Vermont player to earn national tournament all-star status since 2007. The tournament ended the season for Vermont's teams. The 2016-17 schedule will open with the Sue Pasco Opening Tournament in September. Burlington's results
