Quiz Bowl

 

Two teams of four compete head to head to be the first to answer questions read by a moderator. Quiz Bowl is presented in cooperation with National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT).

 

Here are the basics of NCASA Quiz Bowl

  • A team has up to eight players but only four play at a time.
  • Each match has twenty toss-up / bonus combinations, ten in each half.
  • Each toss-up / bonus combination begins with a toss-up question available to any player on either team.
  • As the question is being read any player may buzz-in to answer the question.
  • A correct answer earns ten points and the right for that team to answer the three-part bonus question worth thirty points.

Quiz Bowl is an academic competition in which two teams of four students compete head to head using a buzzer system to be the first to answer questions read by a moderator. The fast-paced format tests the combined prowess of the teams to determine the ultimate winner.

Quiz Bowl is presented in cooperation with:

  1. National Academic Quiz Tournaments (NAQT) and
  2. the North Carolina Academic Team Association (NCATA).
