The top team will qualify for the 2017 Community College Championship tournament, to be held in Minnesota in February.
Quiz Bowl is a great opportunity for students to reinforce what they have learned in the classroom, to work together as a team, to meet students from other schools, and to have fun!
Thank you and we hope you will be able to join us in January!
