Bible Bowl tournament at Milligan College draws hundreds of teens from across the nation

MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (June 8, 2009) —Hundreds of young people from the region as well as across the nation are at Milligan College this week, June 7-10, for the summer conference Bible Bowl.

The Bible Bowl competition promotes fun fellowship while learning Scripture from the Bible. Over 200 participants along with youth ministers and team leaders make up the 32   teams. Bible Bowlers compete by answering questions accurately and quickly. All questions for the quizzing program are about the Bible. Winners in certain categories will receive Bible Bowl college scholarships upon admission to Milligan College.

In addition to competing in Bible Bowl, Bible Bowlers will experience college life by living in the dorms and eating in the dining center. They will also enjoy sports, swimming, and some local activities.

“These young people are committed to the program and study a tremendous amount of text,” said Nathan Flora, campus minister at Milligan.  “We are excited to once again host them on our campus.

This is the 45th year for Bible Bowl. Each year hundreds of teams all around the United States study over the course of a 10-11 month period. Teams compete monthly on a local level. There are several summer tournaments held at Christian colleges during the weeks leading up to the National Tournament. At the end of the year, many of these teams travel to the National Bible Bowl Tournament held July 3-7 in Indianapolis, Ind.  

Top achievers are awarded trophies and scholarships to Christian and Bible colleges.
