What’s the Buzz? · News from NAQT
NAQT's mission is to run the nation's premier quiz bowl championships, not only in terms of question quality and logistics, but also in terms of the well-being of all participants. We would like to summarize the changes that have been—and will be—made to further our goal of ensuring that quiz bowl is a safe, welcoming, and respectful activity.
For the 2018–2019 competition year, NAQT has made a number of relatively minor changes to its eligibility rules and rules governing qualification for some national championships.
NAQT is now accepting proposals for $1,000 grants designed to help members of the quiz bowl community expand the game in their area. Proposals are due by October 15, 2018.
The latest entries in NAQT’s line of subject-specific practice question compilations, Thumbs Up! for Fine Arts, is now available. There are two sets available at each of three difficulty levels; each set costs $15 and contains 90 tossups and 90 bonuses. NAQT has also released eight new all-tossup sets of Thumbs Up! for History at various difficulty levels.
