Quiz Bowl is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for which High School students attend periodic practices and then represent their school at junior varsity and varsity tournaments. Regardless of the size of the team, four players play at a time. Some tournaments are based on the school’s athletic conference while others are open to all schools.

The quiz bowl season generally runs from October until April. Most quiz bowl events are tournaments on Saturday, for which anywhere from 4 to 50 teams from different schools drive to a central location (the “host”) and play five to twelve matches, each of which takes about 30 minutes. The conference tournament is usually held in January and the televised competition is held in February. 

Quiz bowl questions range over the entire spectrum of a high school curriculum and also include a certain amount of current events, sports, and popular culture. The matches feature a blend of individual competition and team collaboration, since no individual player is likely to be an expert in all subject areas. Quiz bowl can reinforce classroom lessons and also encourage players to go beyond their assignments to master other areas as well.
