The Lincoln County School System held its first annual Middle School Scholars’ Bowl on May 10 at Motlow State Community College in Fayetteville.

Blanche, Flintville, Highland Rim, South Lincoln and Unity all competed in a quiz bowl style competition. Each team was made up of a combination of 12 sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. Members of the Lincoln County High School Student Council served as moderators, timekeepers, and scorekeepers for the competition.

At the end of the daylong event, Highland Rim School won second place, and South Lincoln School took home the championship.
