Praxis Bowl participants test their knowledge about licensure exam topics.

Praxis Bowl participants test their knowledge about licensure exam topics.

A team of speech-language pathology students from the School of Allied Health Sciences recently won the Praxis Bowl at the Texas Speech, Language and Hearing Annual Convention in Houston.

The Praxis Bowl, originally called the Dysphagia Bowl, was started in 1997 by two TTUHSC students. All speech-language pathology programs in Texas are invited to participate in the bowl each year. Teams answer questions similar to those on their licensure exam.

Winners are recognized in the Communicologist, a quarterly newsletter for the Texas Speech-Language Hearing Association. The winning team also takes home educational materials and the Golden Glia, a bedazzled traveling trophy in the shape of a brain. The word Glia has to do with neurons.

This year’s championship team consisted of Dalan Gore, Amanda Jarman, Emily Privett, and Susan Sneed. Carolyn Perry, M.S., CCC-SLP, assistant professor, Speech-Language Pathology, served as the faculty sponsor. Renee Bogschutz, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, assistant professor, Speech-Language Pathology, co-organized the event.
