The questions have been developed in fifteen curriculum areas proportionate to the relative emphasis each area receives in a Middle School Curriculum. The questions have been randomized so that within each round, there will not be a string of items from a particular curriculum area. Questions test students’ recall, problem solving, and critical thinking skills. The questions used in the competitions relate to the following curriculum areas including:

National & World Affairs
Government
American History
Health & Psychology
Art & Music
Literature
Biology
Math
Current Events
Minnesota History
Earth Science
Physical Science
Economics & Law
World History
English
World Languages
Geography

There are written and oral questions during the course of the competition. Five alternate oral questions are included at the end of each round for use at the discretion of the reader and/or judge.
