SENIOR CURRENT EVENT CHALLENGE


This year's winners of the Senior Current Event Challenge were Levi Arnold, Justin Thiel, and Rob Gylsen. After nine teams were reduced down to five after preliminary rounds, the final question determined the winner. It all came down to the final wager as every team answered the final question incorrectly (John Wilkes Booth's father threatened to assassinate Andrew Jackson). However, their waging strategy paid off and they are the winners and have punched their ticket into PPHS CEC Hall of Fame, as well as earning the grand prize of a pizza feast. Congratulation, gentlemen!
