Information

Texas Quiz Bowl Alliance will hold its Metroplex Challenge Quiz Bowl Tournament on November 9, 2013, at The Greenhill School. This tournament will include both Novice and Middle School divisions. Registration for this event is open. You may register via email to romeroc-at-gmail-dot-com.

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.

Registration will open at 8 a.m. We will have a brief meeting at 8:45 and start our first matches around 9:15 a.m. Each team will play at least 6 preliminary round matches. Pizza will be available for pre-order on tournament morning and drinks and concessions will be available during a 30-minute lunch break after round 6. The tournament will conclude with a single-elimination phase to determine a champion.

The cost of attending this event is $125 per team. A $35 buzzer discount is available. Please note that Texas Quiz Bowl is offering an entry fee discount program for Title I schools. Please contact us, if you wish to inquire about this program.

The top middle school teams in this tournament will qualify to attend the 2014 NAQT Middle School National Championship Tournament in May in Atlanta.
