VIENNA — Students representing Wood County’s middle schools gathered Friday at the Grand Pointe Conference Center in Vienna for a Wood County Schools History Bowl Scrimmage.

The event gave teams a chance to practice for the regional West Virginia History Bowl competition which will be held Feb. 3 at Blennerhassett Middle School.

Ten Wood County teams will face off against teams from the surrounding counties of Jackson, Wirt, Pleasants, Roane, Calhoun, Ritchie and Tyler, for a chance to compete at the state West Virginia History Bowl on April 25 at The Culture Center in Charleston.

The History Bowl has teams of eighth graders compete to answer questions about West Virginia history and culture. The scrimmage Friday gave local teams a chance to experience what the regional competition may bring and how to better prepare themselves for possible questions.

WV History Bowl Coordinate Royce Diehl, and Adam Parson, with the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History, acted as judges in Friday’s scimmage.
