From April 25th to the 28th, the History Club ran the First Annual Kahoot Challenge in the auditorium. On the 25th and 26th, dozens of students competed in the preliminaries, with 30 students moving on to the semi-finals. From there 17 moved on to the finals on Friday.
The competition was tight and the top five were within a few hundred points of each other. In the end Ivy Lin was unstoppable earning her first place and the coveted tickets to see Shawn Mendes provided by Moxie. Ty Dobbins took second place and a $25 Chili's gift certificate, and Luke Giltner bringing in third and receiving a gift card to Dunkin Donuts. All semifinalists received Blaze pizzas.
Kahoot is an online review game that has become popular in education in the recent past. Students compete against each other on a laptop or over their phone, with questions showing on the master screen. Mr. Reyes and Ms. Russo, advisers to the History Club wanted to bring some fun to the activity periods by hosting this contest.
