Academic Bowl is a scholastic competition for high school students sponsored by the Northeast Georgia Regional Educational Service Agency. Teams from participating schools compete against each other in a series of matches between October and December, with the top teams advancing to the championship tournament. Students from Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Greene, Jackson, Jefferson City, Madison, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Social Circle, and Walton school systems are eligible to participate in the competition. Questions in Academic Bowl matches cover subject matter from Georgia's high school curriculum as well as current events.  There is an emphasis on language arts, science, math, and social studies.
