On February 13, 2016, Texas Quiz Bowl will host a Heart of Texas tournament at Temple High School (415 N 31st St, Temple 76504). There will be a high school division and a middle school division. Schools new to our competitions can enter one team without charge.

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.

Minimum per-team fee for MS: $70

Base fee for high-school tournament: $120
