High School Quiz Bowl
Quizbowl is a competition where teams of players use a buzzer system to score points for their team by answering questions on a wide range of academic topics.
What are the key ingredients of a quizbowl match?
- Two teams of 1 to 4 players
- The buzzer system, which any individual player can use to ring in and indicate that he/she knows the answer to a question
- A packet of questions, which is read to both teams by a moderator
- “Tossup” questions that both teams’ players can buzz in on when they know the answer, without having to wait until the end of the question
- Some form of “bonus” questions allowing an individual team more chances at points
- A running score for each team, which goes up each time a member of that team offers a correct answer to a question
Quiz Bowl is open to Humboldt High School students grades 9 - 12.
