Career Bowls

Black Creativity Career Bowls are fun and educational games designed to introduce a variety of occupations and careers to students in grades 6-12. Combining aspects of Jeopardy and Who Wants to be a Millionaire, students learn about careers and compete for cash prizes for their schools by answering questions about responsibility, growth, foundation skills, workplace competencies and various occupations. Professionals are on hand to answer questions and provide information.

Career bowls take place on February 7, 8, 9, 15 and 16. Participants have been selected for the 2006 program. This program is not open to the public, only to school groups that make reservations in advance. Schools that would like to attend should contact Octavia Hooks at (773) 947-3729.
