The pep rally will be held in the high school auditorium and begin at 1:15. Representatives from Rogers State University will present scholarships to four team members for being runner-up on "I Want Answers!" The pep rally will also serve as a sendoff for the team as they head out for the State Academic Team Tournament to be held at Redlands Community College in El Reno on Saturday, February 3.

They played Riverfield County Day School in the final episode which aired on Thursday, January 18th. Riverfield started off strong and had a quick fifty-point lead. However, Wilburton came back in the second quarter, and the teams were tied. Wilburton did well in the 3rd quarter speed round, but ended up losing in the 4th quarter. The winners receive a $2000 scholarship, and the runner up receives $1000.

The froshmore team began its season on Thursday, January 25th. The social studies meet and math meet were held at Wilburton, and the team competed against Hilldale and Stigler. They went undefeated and earned first place in both social studies and math. The team scored over 300 points in both math rounds. These wins qualify the team to attend the state froshmore tournament on March 3rd. The team has two remaining meets in their season—fine arts and science. These will be held in February. The team members who competed this past Thursday included James, Andrew, Stage, Gavin, Morgan, LaShan, Kristy, Nikkol, and Bridgette.
