What is Scholastic (Or Quiz) Bowl?
It is a competition of questions and answers, played by teams with buzzers. Questions are read, and players buzz in (without consulting) when they think they know the answer. If they give a correct answer, they earn points plus a bonus question in which they can work with their team to earn additional points. Questions cover a wide range of academic topics plus pop culture, sports, and current events.
