Quiz Bowl in Asia
Quiz bowl is an academic game in which teams of four players compete against each other to “buzz in” to answer questions about any conceivable subject. By competing in our quiz bowl tournaments, your students have the potential to join the ranks of former and current players at of Harvard, Yale, Cambridge, and Oxford in our Hall of Champions.
