The Brain Bowl
Each year since 1985, the FEF has hosted an Annual State Brain Bowl Competition designed to motivate students to improve skills in mathematics, writing and reading. Students prepare for the Brain Bowl over a period of several months by solving challenging mathematical problems; reading college level written works; learning and using advanced vocabulary in writing and speech; and exercising their writing, speaking and critical thinking skills to compose and present essays on character-related principles.
After training and preparation, students compete to test their
knowledge and win college scholarships and other prizes. More than 16,000 students have participated as team members, and
more than 700
students have won scholarships donated by Florida’s public and
private colleges and universities.
