Nearly 100 students from nine Seminole County high schools competed in the 20th annual Battle of the Brains at Seminole State College of Florida’s Oviedo Campus on Feb. 28.

Seminole High School's Black Team took first place, and Lake Mary High's Red Team took second. The top teams were coached by Jane Cooper (Seminole) and Steven DeSanto (Lake Mary). Each student on these teams received a commemorative plaque. Students from Crooms Academy, Hagerty, Lyman, Oviedo, Lake Howell, Lake Brantley and Winter Springs also competed.

The top five individual 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.
