In 2019, we have 12 different high schools making up 23 different teams. Teams come from all over Jackson and Josephine counties. The Brain Bowl tournament is a trivia style competition where teams of students from local schools compete to answer questions from categories like geography, literature, video games and popular culture to win points. This round robin bracket competition allows all schools the opportunity to compete against each other. High School Brain Bowl competitors come to the university for an all day event. Junior varsity competition ends the same day as the tournament with a winner determined. Varsity finalists from the all day competition compete later in the spring on Southern Oregon Public Television.

Academic Competitions, such as Brain Bowl, are made possible by the generous support from all participating school districts, the staff and volunteers at Southern Oregon Public Television and from Lithia 4 Kids. Our gratitude is extended for their support of our academic community and for helping us celebrate a “life of the mind.”
Day of Information
We ask that parents and spectators go directly to Taylor Hall in the morning. Community volunteers, Coaches and Students go to the Science Building for Introduction and light refreshments before beginning matches in Taylor Hall. Check in is from 8:30am-9:00am in the Science Building Lobby. Buses may drop off students in front of the Science Building (see map) but park in Lot 36 for the day. If vans or cars are being used instead, codes must be entered in Lot 36 prior to parking, and then proceed to park in Lot 27, just below the Science Building.
