Manhattan will face off against eleven other teams in a quiz-bowl style event, featuring questions from all subject areas such as history, geography, mathematics, fine arts, pop culture, sports, science, and literature.  During the two-day event, students will also have an opportunity to try out for the Montana All Stars, a team which competes against the Wyoming All Stars in June.  Six students---Isaac Boyd, Daniel Carlson, Hannah Madsen, Elle Olsztyn, Kolter Stevenson, and Hope Szymczak---will represent Manhattan.  Competing schools in the All Class event include:  Frenchtown, Billings Skyview, Billings Senior, Billings West, Missoula Sentinel, Bozeman, Great Falls Central, Fergus County, Fairfield, Broadwater County, and Beaverhead County.  Good Luck Tigers!
