Morgan State University Wins Honda Campus All-Star Challenge

The 23rd annual Honda Campus All-Star Challenge was held in Los Angeles from this past weekend. A total of 48 teams from historically Black, or predominantly Black, colleges and universities participated in the national championship tournament. Teams participated in an academic quiz tournament based on the old television series, “College Bowl.”

This year for the first time in the 23-year history of the event, the team from Morgan State University in Baltimore won the championship. Morgan bested a team from Oakwood University in the final match. Florida A&M University and Morehouse College were semifinalists. Alabama State University, North Carolina A&T State University, Stillman College, and Southern University-New Orleans made it to the quarterfinal round. Morgan State received a grant of $50,000 for the university from Honda for winning the event.

Since 1989, 75,000 students have competed in the Honda Campus All-Star Challenge and the automaker has awarded more than $6 million in prizes to participating colleges and universities.
