JAINA Academic Bowl
JAB committee has been busy working on the following projects:
  • Formed a brand new category in JAB tournament called the Beginner team. This will encourage Pathshala participation of centers that are new to JAB, who may have wanted to join but were intimidated to face the seasoned teams. We anticipate an increase in participation of other Pathshala centers who may not have been too keen on attending the convention otherwise.
  • JAB manual updating project: Revised & updated JAB manual for accuracy in content, to make it more appealing to students & to make it more engaging in learning about Jainism.
  • Gathered feedback & suggestions from the coaches of participating centers to help improve future tournaments, while making a positive impact on the students.
  • Preparations for future JAB tournament: Preparing question sets for tournaments; Uploading previous question papers for practice; Team registration links; and JAB Announcement to all the centers.
JAB committee has been busy working on the following projects:
  • Increase the participation of the teams to 17; participating centers by 10, thereby increasing the total number of participants to 120.

MISSION

Jain Academic Bowl’s mission is to create a unique experience for the youth of our Jain centers across North America, by bringing them together in a fun, educational game style format, whereby it allows them to increase their knowledge of Jainism and providing them an opportunity to forge new friendships with the Pathshala students nationwide.

IMPACT:

  • The support towards JAB from JAINA during every convention helps in spreading the knowledge of Jainism to the young participants as well as the enthusiastic adult audience, as recorded with completely packed rooms during the tournament
  • At every JAINA convention, participation by multiple Pathshala teams from various Jain Centers, their participants, coaches & the Admin team, along with their family members, have created a strong & positive impact year after year.
