What’s the Buzz? · News from NAQT
For Cyber Monday, NAQT is releasing new practice materials! We’ve converted the questions from Seasons 3 and 4 of Buzzword, our online individual quiz competition, into written practice materials for use with your entire team.
For $99, you can get all the questions from the all-subject games in Season 3 (Levels A, B, and C) and Season 4 (Levels A and C). That’s 2,000 tossup questions, new to anyone at your school who didn’t play those Buzzword games. These questions will help your players prepare for team competitions or Buzzword Season 6, which will begin in early 2022.
NAQT is pleased to announce that our 2022 Community College Sectional Championship Tournaments will take place the weekend of January 21-23. Both in-person and online hosting options will be available for the 2022 CC SCT. If your school would like to host CC SCT this coming January, please use our tournament request form.

Buzzword, NAQT's online quiz bowl game that can be played anywhere by anyone, is back for a fifth season!
Season 5 kicks off October 14 and runs through December 14. We'll be offering eight weeks of all-subject Buzzword at Level A (introductory) and Level C (more difficult) and eight weeks of all-new Popular Culture games.
We're also pleased to offer several options for coaches to help their players improve:
Starting October 14, we're offering three question sets from our archives: the tossups from Invitational Series #186, Invitational Series #185A, and Middle School Series #31 will be available to play on Buzzword at the low price of $12-15 per season.
In addition, Buzzword now has an improved interface that makes it easy for coaches to register multiple players for both practice and competition sets. When you register four or more players, registrations are discounted by up to 70%.
Finally, Buzzword's Coach Tools provide detailed data about player performance. See exactly what questions players are answering and where they're buzzing to determine how your team is progressing and what areas to focus on.
If you have questions about registering or need our help during this season, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome feedback about features that would make Buzzword an even better experience.
We're looking forward to having lots of new and familiar faces join us for Buzzword Season 5!
