     Quiz Bowl has already kicked off for the school year and a new program is showing very positive results. Mrs. Allen, the current GATE teacher, is the main supervisor of Quiz Bowl and has made it available for any student to attend.

     “This is the first year that Quiz Bowl has been opened up to all students, not just those in GATE. Hopefully, my team’s enthusiasm and success will encourage other students to try out next year.”

     For those who are curious as to what Quiz Bowl is, the NAQT (National Academic Quiz Tournaments) states that

     “Quiz bowl is a game in which two teams compete head-to-head to answer questions from all areas of knowledge, including history, literature, science, math, geography, fine arts, current events, popular culture, sports, and more.”

     There are many opportunities for the students to shine in many categories. In order to help them learn and strengthen their memory skills, several teachers host focus groups in the morning and afternoon. Along with those groups, each Quiz Bowl team has a weekly practice and has time to learn information on their own. If you are interested in joining next year, make sure and talk to Mrs. Allen.
