PAGE Academic Bowl for Middle Grades

2021-2022 PAGE Academic Bowl – Registration Now Open!

For the 2021-2022 Season of PAGE Academic Bowl, we *hope* to offer a face-to-face season, but are working on a “Plan B” as well. It’s possible that some regions may participate virtually and others may participate in person. As we all know, things can change quickly. We will email the Head Coach of registered teams if there is any new information.

Registration is open through November 22. Any team wishing to participate may register themselves for regionals. There is no longer a cap on the number of teams per district.
Regional competition is scheduled for December 11. Not all region locations have been decided. Region assignments will be made closer to Thanksgiving.
A minimum of 2 teams per region will advance to the January 22 State Competition. State is scheduled to once again happen at Georgia College in Milledgeville.

Please visit the Dates and Registration page for more info and to register your team. Direct any questions to the State Coordinator, Michelle Crawford at
