Trivia Bowl

Two Nashua High School South teams went head to head in the fourth and final round of the school’s social studies trivia bowl Thursday, battling it out for a highly coveted prize: glory and a Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. In a swift game of 51 history, civics, economics and other social studies questions, Ankita Devasia, Hailey Sweeney, Ben Telerski, Waithira Kiritu and George Eid won, 32-6. This same group also made it to the semifinals in the Granite State Challenge this year, but ultimately lost to Plymouth Regional High School. ‘It’s impressive to see some of our students in action,’ said Michael McQuilkin, social studies department head. Frank Covart, a teacher in the department and the moderator/question writer said the bowl allows for a different side of history than just blanket memorization. ‘It lets us do more than we can do in the classroom,’ he said.
