The mission of LT Ball Quiz Bowl is to provide students with a venue to challenge themselves academically & competitively in a supervised after school activity with friends.
Quiz Bowl allows students an opportunity to acquire new knowledge and portray attitudes of respect for themselves and others as they enjoy academic competition.
Quiz Bowl is a computer based trivia and general knowledge contest. Students work on teams to answer questions on a variety of subjects and topics.
In the Fall, 4th and 5th grade student teams meet for 4 weeks to practice using online practice tests. The 5th week all our school teams will compete against each other at LT Ball and the top scoring team will be chosen to represent our school in the online competition against other schools from all over the Mid West.
The most successful teams are usually those who try to create a diverse team with students who are "experts" in different content areas - books, sports, current events, history, math, science etc.
Quiz Bowl will host 4 practice sessions for teams to get acquainted and view the categories and different types of questions that will be used during the competition. Many times the teams use these practices to determine which of their members are the "go to experts" in specific categories of questions.
The practice sessions will be held usually on Wednesdays starting in October.
