USC fifth graders win America Bowl
A team of Boyce Middle School students earned top honors at the regional America Bowl on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, at Baldwin High School. Upper St. Clair fifth graders Marco Carone, Louis Gargani, Jhoran Laffin and Shiven Verma placed first among a field of approximately 30 school districts.
Students answered individual and team questions from categories that included Pittsburgh, U.S. Presidents, U.S. States, Famous People in America, Things to See in America, U.S. Government and Physical Map.
“The students commented on what a fun educational experience the America Bowl was and how they would like to attend again,” Susan Fleckenstein, gifted and enrichment resource teacher, said.
