After weeks of arduous studying, teams of sixth through eighth graders from every Philly PAL center participated in academic competitions in hopes of being named the 2014 PAL Challenge champions. Youngsters played in four regionals and a final competition at Temple University on January 15th. After very close matches between North Penn and Gibbons, and Wissinoming and Southwest PAL centers, the all-girl team from Gibbons PAL was crowned champion.

Players were quizzed in a variety of categories, including Math, Science, U.S. History, Animals, Colleges and Universities and more. This PAL tradition is fun and educational for more than 100 kids across the City, while improving positive study habits and building their confidence as students. Final competitors received sweatshirts, medals, plaques and a delicious taco dinner. All participants received a PAL Challenge t-shirt.

PAL congratulates all participants for a successful 20th Anniversary of PAL Challenge.
