Lansing students on Quest to learn
Five Lansing High School students will compete at the 2005-06 Quest academic competition on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Washburn University in Topeka.
Representing Lansing will be senior Kim Cavaleri; juniors Matt Fischer, Natalie Hall and Lauren Summers; and freshman Clayton Hall.
At the tournament, students will race against time to try to answer up to 200 questions. They will have only five seconds for each one, said Ginny Scott, team sponsor. Topics include art, literature, history, math and science.
Teams from about 90 schools from across Kansas will compete at the tournament. Teams earning the top 16 scores will advance to the finals and will appear on Washburn University's public television station KTWU from February to May 2006.
