Bennett’s Mill Wins Regional Academic Competition

Fayette County's middle school students recently showed off their knowledge of various academic and performing art subjects at the PAGE (Professional Association of Georgia Educators) Region 6 Academic Bowl for Middle Grades.

Only two school teams from 12 regions throughout Georgia are selected as regional winners. The Bennett’s Mill Middle team won one of the two slots for Region 6. Winning teams go on to compete at the state finals.

The PAGE Academic Bowl features teams of middle school students answering questions on subjects ranging from Georgia history to mathematics, science, literature and the performing arts. Opposing teams compete against the clock to answer toss-up and bonus questions in order to score points.

The goal of the program is to inspire students to excel academically, to enhance student self-confidence and self-esteem through high achievement, and to encourage both a team and competitive spirit.
