ATHENS, WV – On Saturday, November 4th, Concord University hosted the first in-person West Virginia Science Bowl preliminary high school competition since 2019. The 2020-2022 competitions were all held virtually.

The November 4th event determined which high school teams from the 12-county Regional Education Services Agencies (RESA) 1 and 4 regions would be eligible to go on to the state competition scheduled for February 3, 2024. The RESA 1 counties include Raleigh, Summers, Monroe, Mercer, McDowell, and Wyoming. The RESA 4 counties are Braxton, Webster, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, Fayette, and Nicholas. Seven teams from five regional high schools attended along with Concord volunteers, teachers/coaches, and family members. High schools with competing teams included BluefieldOak HillPikeViewPrinceton, and Woodrow Wilson.

  • 1st place – Oak Hill team 1

  • 3rd place – PikeView team 1
