VIES History Bowl Team in front of the school sign

Each spring 4th graders around the county gear up to test their knowledge on all things Virginia History.  The 4H each year sponsors the annual History Bowl which is held each year at the Higher Ed Center in Abingdon, Virginia. Each elementary school send one team of 4 students and 1 alternate to represent their school at the History Bowl.  Valley’s team consisted of Audreanna Mc., Amelia H., Zoe M., and Jase B..  The alternate was McKenzie H. and head coach was Mrs. Rutledge.  After many rounds of sharing their knowledge of the state of Virginia, Valley Institute was awarded 2nd place in the competition just behind the winner High Point.  We are so proud of our team and commend their hard work!  Way to go Valley Bulldogs!
