Scholars Bowl is a game in which two teams compete head-to-head to answer questions from all areas of knowledge, including history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, popular culture, sports, and more.
The defining feature of tournament 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.
Scholars Bowl meets every Wednesday morning in the fall and competitions are on Saturdays. In the spring, they practice on Tuesday's after school.
