Paul Laurence Dunbar wrapped up another first-place finish among high schools in the 2013 Governor’s Cup, which wrapped up March 18 in Louisville, and Tates Creek took top honors in the future problem-solving (FPS) portion.
The Governor’s Cup, Kentucky’s premier academic competition, was founded in 1986 as a way to promote and reward outstanding achievement. A contest consists of five written assessment exams, composition or on-demand writing, future problem-solving and quick recall, also known as quiz bowl. Tates Creek finished ninth overall, while Dunbar was fourth in future problem-solving and a quarterfinalist in the quick-recall contest.
