CALEXICO — Seventh- and eighth-grade students fought to show who had the most knowledge of history in the annual countywide junior high social science/history competition Thursday at William Moreno Junior High here.
Teams of five, with one alternate, from 10 schools competed against squads from their grade level, showing their knowledge of ancient history, famous people, significant dates and states and capitols.
An individual competition added to team points. Team members were given a map skills test worth one extra point for each question answered correctly.
The team from El Centro's Kennedy Middle School of Amy Sanchez, Francisco Cabrerra, Betsy Gomez, Manuel Avila, Ephraim Jacobo and Raul Duarte won the seventh-grade competition.
