It’s that time of year again! The 2012 Academic Bowl for Deaf and Hard of Hearing High School Students kicks off Thursday, April 12 and runs through Monday, April 16 on the Gallaudet University campus. The tournament hosts 320 deaf and hard of hearing high school students from around the U.S. and, for the first time ever, Canada to compete in the academic quiz tournament.

Questions are drawn from the following categories: history and government; language and literature; Science and technology; geography; mathematics; the arts; deaf studies; current events; and pop culture, leisure, and sports.
