Tallahassee, Leon County- As the end of the first school quarter drew near, four teams of Leon County Schools fourth graders faced off in the Florida League of Cities' Municipal Brain Bowl.

In the end, the students from Killearn Lake Elementary earned the title of Brain Bowl Champions, with Roberts Elementary placing second, Astoria Park placing third, J. Michael Conley coming in fourth.

The 2011 Municipal Brain Bowl is the third Municipal Brain Bowl held in Leon County Schools.
