A trio of Maple Ridge secondary students will travel to Athens, Greece in July to compete in the global round of the World Scholar’s Cup after finishing third in last month’s Vancouver regional round.
The World Scholar’s Cup is meant to celebrate the joy of learning through a tournament that tests critical thinking skills on subjects that affect people globally.
Students go through four phases of the competition: team debating; a “scholar’s bowl” that forces teams to strategically solve questions; collaborative writing; and a multiple choice challenge.
Sophia Dobischok, Dolan Deschamps and Jake Pauls will represent MRSS as a team in Athens.
