Eighteen La Salle High School Students Win Multiple Medals in World Scholar’s Cup, Qualify for Global Round in Bangkok

La Salle High School sent a delegation of 18 students who were split into six teams of three. The team of seniors Zachary Damir, Bettina Lee and Japhet Quitzon finished third place overall. Four teams placed in the top 10, and all scored over 20,000 points, the minimum required to qualify for the global round.

This year’s theme was An Imperfect World; scholars were tested in areas such as Crime and Justice, History of Cheating and Public Health. After studying these topics throughout the year, they competed in four events that include a collaborative essay, 90-question multiple choice test, 3-round team debate and a team quiz bowl.

Over 45 countries and over 1500 schools compete worldwide in 53 regional World Scholar’s Cup competitions. The top 10 teams at each regional competition move on to the Global Round. Select high-achieving teams at the Global Round will then qualify for the annual Tournament of Champions at Yale University.
