West Point's Middle and High School Scholars' Bowl Teams have established a tradition of success over the past several years. We have won many local and state championships, and have placed highly in National Tournaments. As such, more opportunities to compete are opening up for us. These kids have worked very hard and have earned the right to compete on the national stage at various National Championship events around the nation.
We have depended upon hosting numerous tournaments each year to pay for registration, hotels, gas, van rentals, food, etc. for our tournaments. Unfortunately, due to COVID, we have not been able to host any tournaments this year. We usually go through around $10,000 per year, which we raise ourselves through tournament fees and donations. A large portion of this comes from the kids' parents helping to pay our expenses.
As our team continues to work hard and improve, more opportunities are opening up for them to compete all over the state and all over the nation. However, this is very expensive. We are hoping that the community will step up and donate to help us with our costs. These kids deserve to compete with the best in the country each year. We can't do that without financial support!
