Orca Bowl 2015

Congratulations, Friday Harbor High School!

Friday Harbor High School competed and won the Orca Bowl on February 28, 2015 on the University of Washington campus. The ocean sciences competition involved 20 teams from all over Washington and was particularly intense, requiring 11 rounds of questioning. Orca Bowl is coordinated by Washington Sea Grant and the event was a great success in raising awareness of marine science. Friday Harbor has taken first place in the Orca Bowl 5 times in the past 10 years – an amazing record. We are very proud of Friday Harbor Team, who won the 2015 competition. They are moving on to the National Ocean Sciences Bowl scheduled for April 23 – 26, 2015 in Mississippi.
