The West Virginia North District Church of the Nazarene Regional Bible Quiz was held at the Chester Church of the Nazarene on March 3.
The youth were quizzed for more than two hours on this year's Bible study based on the book of Matthew. The quiz involved two levels.
The first-place winner on the red level for first- and second-graders was Levi Hostuttler of the Weirton Church with Jessica Duty of Newell Glendale Church taking second place, and Haley Silvers of the Wellsburg Church taking third-place honors.
The blue level quizzers represent youth in grades three through six with first place a tie between Luke Harris of the Chester Church and Phillip Hinerman of the Weirton church. Blaine Haven of Newell Glendale Church won second place while Victoria Bryan, also of Newell Glendale Church, won third.
The regional quiz is under the direction of Linda Bennett of the Weirton Church, area quiz director, and Debbie Good, regional director, of the Parkersburg Church.
District winners on both levels will participate in the North District Level Quiz March 31 at the Morgantown Pierpont Church of the Nazarene in Morgantown. Winners of the district contest will advance to the General Church Regional Quiz to be held at Mount Vernon University in Mount Vernon, Ohio.
