The race against time begins as students compete for not only medals but also a Poland Trip and a visit by government officials. Out of 100 questions, the one who gets the most score in 40 minutes across all age divisions is awarded a ticket to Poland. 

The competition was tough, but students worked hard to learn more about Poland and its rich history, culture, geography, and even swords. On the USS Intrepid, the moment of truth was finally revealed. 

Congratulations to our high-scoring winners from each of the 4 divisions.
