The 33rd Annual Upward Bound Academic Bowl will be held at Coastal Bend College in Beeville on April 10. UB Bowl is very similar to UIL Academic Competitions that students are able to participate in public schools from elementary through high school. Upward Bound students from Coastal Bend College, Texas A & M University—Corpus Christi, South Texas College and Laredo Community College come together to compete.
Events will take place at CBC, A.C. Jones High School and Bee County Expo Center. Directions and maps will be available during check-in.
Students will participate in the following academic competitions: math, science, reading writing, spelling, poetry, persuasive speaking, College Bowl (similar to Jeopardy), and artistic expression (singing, playing instrument, dancing). Students must also participate in an athletic event: softball, basketball or volleyball.
Saturday night, all the students will gather for a banquet which includes the awards ceremony, dinner and a dance. The theme for the dance is “Aloha Hawaiian.”
