Montgomery County schools annual Black History Quiz Bowl

Christiansburg, Va. (WSLS10) Students in Montgomery County are celebrating Black History Month in a different way.

Workers with the Black History Awareness Club at Christiansburg High school held their annual Black History Quiz Bowl.

Students from middle and high schools had the chance to participate in a Jeopardy style competition to learn more about African American history.

"A lot of students didn't realize where our inventions came from or even some of the local history that takes place here at the christiansburg institute so we do have a category in our quiz bowl today that focuses on our local history because we know there is a lot of local history here," Roxanne Beamer the organizer said.

Winners were awarded cash prizes.
