Miami Gardens to host 2015 Heritage Bowl trivia tournament

As part of the city’s Black History Month celebrations, Miami Gardens will host the Heritage Bowl trivia tournament featuring students from local middle and high schools.

The quiz-style tournament, presented by Mayor Oliver Gilbert and the city’s parks department, will be 10 a.m. Tuesday in the Lou Rawls Auditorium on the campus of Florida Memorial University, 15800 NW 42nd Ave. Students will compete for cash prizes and the Carter G. Woodson Achievement Award as they test their knowledge of black historic figures and trivia.

The participating schools will form teams of six to compete until 2 p.m. that day when two teams square off in both the middle and high school divisions. Last year, 13 schools competed for the prize, with Horace Mann Middle and Carol City High winning in their respective divisions.
