Answer Past Questions

"Education is the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in." -Abraham Lincoln

Four-student teams representing each participating high school will compete in half-hour contests to answer questions about national, state, tribal and regional governments, and other topics related to high school-level civics and government study.

Is your school interested in being part of a future Civics Bowl?

The pilot season launches with six schools and teachers from Spokane Public Schools. Questions are provided by the League of Women Voters of the Spokane Area. Televised contests will be recorded in April and will air weekly on Mondays at 7pm, May 2-June 6, 2022. Though this pilot season will include teams from Spokane Public Schools only, we anticipate including schools from all over eastern Washington in subsequent seasons.

Contests will be recorded in-person in the KSPS studios. Each school has been invited to provide a short student-produced video about their school and their team to run during each program.
