Alumni eNewsletter: 11th Annual Academic Bowl Regional Competitions and Gallaudet club events planned for early 2008 (Archives)

Regional competitions for the 11th annual National Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students will begin early next year, with the top two teams from each region squaring off in the finals April 26-29 at Gallaudet.

Conceived in 1997, the National Academic Bowl is sponsored by Gallaudet University. The purpose is to foster the pursuit of academic excellence, promote a spirit of academic competition and good sportsmanship, and encourage social opportunities for collegiality among students.

Gallaudet alumni can "hit two birds with one stone" by attending one of the regional competitions for the 2008 National Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students. The regional bowls offer both exciting mental competitions among the best and brightest deaf and hard of hearing high schoolers AND an opportunity to meet alumni and friends after the competitions at Gallaudet Clubs. The Gallaudet Club is an event that the GUAA chapters and the home office occasionally co-host. It is an informal gathering and provides a great opportunity to catch up with other alumni and learn what is happening at Gallaudet. A Gallaudet Club event is planned for each region. Further details will be posted on the website and in a future e-newsletter issue.
