On February 22, 2014, Texas Quiz Bowl will host its Junior Rodeo Quiz Bowl Bowl event at McMeans Junior High, 21000 Westheimer Pkwy, 77450. This event is for middle school level teams and novice varsity teams.

Quiz Bowl is a academics-based game in which two teams of four students compete to answer questions about math, science, history, literature, religion, and arts. Students buzz in to answer tossup questions and correct tossup responses are rewarded with an opportunity to answer 3 bonus questions that cannot be stolen by the opposing team. The team with the most points after 20 tossup-bonus pairs is the winner.

Check-in for the event will begin at 8 a.m. on tournament morning. An opening meeting will start at approximately 8:45. Following preliminary rounds teams will be seeded by win-loss record into a single elimination playoff bracket. This tournament will use questions from NAQT. The novice varsity division will use an introductory invitational packet set (varsity sample) and the middle school division will use a middle school set (middle school sample).

School2 that have not participated in a TQBA event for the past three years are eligible to play one team in this event for FREE. The fee for other teams this event is $125 per team. There is a $25 discount available for bringing a working buzzer lockout system. Registration is open and can be done by email to cromero@texasquizbowl.org.
