2013 Alaska Tsunami Ocean Sciences Bowl, Seward Team

Here are a some photos of the exciting 2013 Alaska Tsunami Ocean Sciences Bowl, featuring the Seward Team  “Don’t Say No to Coho”: Alex Ashford, captain, a three time participant, Josephine Braun  and Kara Knotek two time participants, and Isabel Barnwell, and Maranda Clark first time. Their very interesting and pertinent paper and presentation was “Resurrection Bay Wild Coho Salmon in Potential Danger.”

The Seward Team came in 11th out of 24 quiz bowl teams, and their paper took 9th place. Congratulations to all the team members and to coach Carlyn Nichols.

All the teams’ papers, contest results, and more information is available soon at
