A group of Juneau Douglas High School students won the Alaska Tsunami Bowl last weekend in Seward.
The final round of the annual marine science competition pitted Team Pogonophoraphobia from JDHS against the Mat-Tsunamis from Mat Su Career & Technical High School in Wasilla.
The Juneau-Douglas team, consisting of Johnny Connolly, Johnny Elliott, Sam Kurland, Olivia Raster and Ruby Steedle, will represent Alaska at the National Ocean Sciences Bowl in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in April.
The competition consisted of both a research project, including a 20-page paper and 20-minute oral presentation, and a timed quiz style match with two teams facing off against each other.
Teams from 17 schools participated in the competition, including one from Juneau’s Thunder Mountain High School.
