More than 60 students from eight Seminole County high schools competed in the 19th annual Battle of the Brains at Seminole State’s Oviedo Campus on Feb. 15.
Seminole High School’s Black Team took the first-place trophy, and Seminole Orange took second. Students from Crooms Academy, Hagerty, Lake Mary, Lyman, Oviedo, Lake Howell and Winter Springs also competed.
The top five scorers – or “all stars” – also received awards.
Battle of the Brains is similar to Jeopardy! but played in teams. The categories are humanities, math, natural science, pop culture and social sciences.
