What is Brain Bowl?

The Brain Bowl Academic Tournament is a Jeopardy-style general knowledge competition, with questions focused on high school academic subjects. Teams from local schools are tested on various subjects, including mathematics, English, science, Caribbean history and current events.

Uniting local schools and encouraging pupils to stretch their academic abilities, the annual Brain Bowl also aims to get pupils to work as a team and develop their critical thinking skills.

Brain Bowl 2022

The 9th annual KPMG Brain Bowl Academic Tournament took place on Wednesday, October 5th at the Kimpton Seafire Resort. We were thrilled to welcome 11 high schools this year, including the Year 12 Dual Enrollment and Calvary Baptist Christian School. This year, there was a total of 55 students and 22 teachers across the whole day. The event was streamed live in its entirety via our KPMG in the Cayman Islands Facebook Page.

This year's theme was ‘Supporting Local Entrepreneurs’. Participants received products from Cayman Cookie Company and Eco Eats in their goodie bags, and had the opportunity to engage in the interactive photo booth from EventPro during registration. Students, teachers, guests and online viewers had the opportunity to listen to an inspirational message from BecomingX Co-Founder, Bear Grylls encouraging students to strive to reach their full potential. 

Many of KPMG’s Partners and people were present during the day of the competition as moderators, judges, and scorekeepers. KPMG was delighted that His Excellency the Governor Martin Roper; the Honorable Deputy Governor Franz Manderson was able to join us and present the 1st place award to the winning team. The Ministry of Education and other Department of Education Officials were also be in attendance. Parents and other guests also joined to watch the students’ performance in the afternoon.

We are extremely proud of how well all students performed in the tournament, especially to Cayman Prep who took first place, with the Year 12 Dual Enrollment and St. Ignatius placing in second and third respectively. Clifton Hunter won the 2022 Sportsmanship Award for demonstrating teamwork, showing a positive attitude, and respect for their teammates and peers throughout the competition.
