The Riverside Junior-Senior High School Scholastic Bowl Team, which participates in academic trivia competitions, will be attending the National Small School Championship Tournament in Rosemont, Illinois this month. The competition features the top small school teams from across the United States. The 2017-2018 Scholastic Team is the first Riverside team to successfully qualify for a national competition after being the top-placing small school in a recent WVIA-sponsored tournament. The team, composed of senior students, is excited to represent not only Riverside School District, but also Taylor, Moosic, Lackawanna County and all of Northeastern Pennsylvania on the national stage as the only local school attending this event.
