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.

Burlington Outlasts Middlebury for State Championship
Burlington High School claimed the Vermont-NEA Scholars' Bowl championship at the University of Vermont on March 26th, fending off Middlebury 360-290 to earn the title for the first time since 2001. Burlington built an early 145-point and fought off Middlebury's last-round comeback to claim its fifth Scholars' Bowl crown overall and cap a season that saw the Seahorses finish first in all 10 local competitions they entered. The finals defeat was the only setback in a brilliant performance that saw Middlebury surge out of the Medlar Cup with five straight wins -- including upsets of Hanover in the quarterfinals and Mt. Mansfield in the semifinals. CVU was the tournament's other semifinalist, topping Rice before falling to Burlington in a 470-305 matchup that was closer than the score.
