HSE-Houston`s Quiz Bowl team competed in the Texas tournament and qualified to the National Quiz Bowl. The national tournament will be held in the first week of May, in Chicago, Illinois. HSE Quiz-Bowlers will be buzzing in against more than 150 other teams from around the country and the world. This is our second advancement to Nationals in a row, we are one of the few teams who guaranteed the Nationals at the beginning of the season.
Quiz Bowl is an academic competition played between two teams of up to 4 players. Players buzz in on questions, which cover a wide range of academic topics including literature, history, science, and the arts. Click here for more details.
Congratulations to Ms. Van Horn and HSE Quiz Bowl team. Thank you for representing our school and Harmony family at the national level.
