NEAAAT’s Quiz Bowl team is currently holding two different fundraisers. The fundraisers are trying to promote awareness of the team. Quiz Bowl is also a great way to encourage academic enrichment, cooperation skills, relationship skills, confidence, social interaction, and presentation skills.
What is Quiz Bowl? Quiz Bowl is a team that usually consists of 4 to 8 members. The team travels to compete in Jeopardy-like tournaments with other schools. As the team competes, they can move up to local, regional, state, and national level competitions. Last year, NEAAAT’s quiz bowl team made it all the way to national level competitions. They were able to travel to Atlanta, Georgia, for the event.
This year, both middle and high school teams have started to raise money early, so that they can travel to tournaments and purchase practice materials for the high schoolers. The money raised by the fundraisers is also going towards sponsoring and holding tournaments at our school. One fundraiser is an online book fair. The team earns 30% of every purchase, so be sure to check it out! The other fundraiser is a “Holiday Box Raffle.” Tickets are $2.00 or three tickets for $5.00. The winning prizes include gift cards, gift certificates, art supplies, books, jewelry, a tablet, and more exciting items.
