30_Year_logos_FinalBlack Colleges and Universities across the nation went head to head today but only one team was crowned as a new champion for Honda Campus All-Star Challenge.

College students have been waiting for this day as they put their knowledge to the test and participated at the 30th Honda Campus All-Star Challenge that culminates a year-round program. The nation’s premier academic competition put the top 48 HBCUs quiz bowl teams together at the Honda Campus in Torrance. Students learned teamwork, sportsmanship and grew their scope of knowledge. Students answered questions about history, science, literature, religion, the arts, and pop culture. Honda says they are very proud of their commitment to bringing this event back every year.

Brigid Dupree also says that former players have volunteered throughout the years during the event to help the students. More than 300 students, coaches, and representatives from around the country came to Torrance. The theme this year was 30 years of Advancing Dreams, and each year Honda awards $358,000 dollars in grants to participating colleges.

Spelman College, a private, liberal arts, women’s college in Atlanta, Georgia took home the grand prize. Make sure to tune in to This Week in Torrance to hear more.
