Quiz Bowl Team---Grades 6-8----Sign up Now
Quiz bowl is a fast-paced competition in which teams of students answer questions about history, science, literature, art, geography, current events, popular culture, and pretty much anything else. A team wins when individuals “buzz in” and answer tossup questions as well as when the team collaborates on more challenging bonus questions.
Who can compete?
Quiz bowl is open to students in grades 6-8. Each team will consist of 5-6 students. Sacred Heart will compete in tournaments run by the National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT).
When are the Tournaments?
Middle school quiz bowl tournaments are generally held on Saturdays with preliminary games in the morning and playoffs in the early afternoon. Tournaments begin in January and continue until mid-March.
When are the practices?
Quiz bowl practices will begin the week of October 18th. A practice schedule will be determined once students sign up. Students will practice answering questions using the buzzer system and working as a team. Because we want to represent Sacred Heart well and because practice makes us more competitive, please do your best to attend practices and tournaments. If there are conflicts, be sure to communicate them with the coach.
How Do I Sign Up?
Contact Mrs. Leisgang or Michael Satterfield, this year’s coach, to sign up for a Quiz Bowl team. You can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please contact us by October 15th.
