Students from Dublin Scioto (Dublin, OH) and Bexley high schools competed in the final championship round of Westfield Insurance-sponsored quiz show, WOSU In the Know. Dublin Scioto came out victorious this year, a first for the district, which meant a lot to the team's participants: Ben Albert, Nikolai Gorelov, Arjun Venkataraman and Neil Bhuta.
Dublin Scioto previously won the second place title on WOSU In the Know during the 2010-2011 season, beaten by the Bexley team. The final match against Bexley will be aired on WOSU at 5:30 p.m. April 12. The victory earned each member a $2,000 scholarship to the Ohio State University. The team also won a $7,000 grant from Westfield Insurance.
Venkataraman said, “We did pretty well. We got to finals and we wanted to go all the way this year. We wanted to beat Bexley... because they beat us last year.”
“I was pretty ecstatic,” Bhuta agreed. “We’ve come pretty close in previous years.”
