JH Quiz Bowl
January 11, 2024
Quiz Bowl is a general knowledge competition that stresses quick recall. The competition is designed for a team of four to five students to participate in a collaborative quiz-like effort in various levels of difficulty that range from trivial to highly technical information from all areas of knowledge, including history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, popular culture, sports, and more. The defining feature of Quiz Bowl is the use of a “buzzer system” that lets players interrupt the reading of a question when they know the answer; that element adds a dimension of confidence, anticipation, and rapid recall to a game about knowing facts.
