Vermont's high school question-and-answer
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.

Ford Leads Burlington to 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
