What is Quiz Bowl?: For years, Quiz Bowl provided an opportunity for parish teams to come together and compete in an exciting battle of the brains! Quiz Bowl is a competitive event for each of these different age groups based on quick recall of intellectual facts. Teams of four youth inclusive sit at light boards with switches and are asked questions geared to their age group about subjects such as History, Science, Sports, Literature, Religion, Current Events etc. Teams signal in to answer the questions, whereby points are given for the correct answer.
The Quiz Bowl is a great opportunity for youth to test their intellectual abilities and mental agility, all in the spirit of fun. Only four youth are needed, however two alternates are helpful, should one of the team members become unavailable.
Would you like to participate in Quiz Bowl?: In order to proceed with the planning process, The Office of Catholic Youth Ministry would like to know that there is an interest in the Quiz Bowl from multiple parishes. A minimum of 8 teams is required to hold these tournaments. If you would like to participate in the Quiz Bowl, would like more information regarding these events, or would like to know how to receive practice materials, please contact the Office of Catholic Youth Ministry ASAP!
