2014 Quiz Bowl Champions

On Saturday, April 26, we were privileged to host the 2014 Arkansas Governor’s Quiz Bowl Association (AGQBA) state championship. This year’s participants were great fun — they made us laugh, they made us gasp … and they may or may not have made us feel like we should hit the books.

In case you aren’t familiar with the academic competition, through a series of questions, quiz bowl requires players to display their knowledge of literature, math, science, history, art, music and economics. The AGQBA holds regional tournaments around the state during the month of March. Teams are assigned to a site, and a random drawing places the teams on a pairing schedule. A percentage of teams in the tournament advance to the state tournament, and the top two teams from each classification advance to the state conference finals, which we host each spring!
 
So, who of all these brilliant students won their divisions? The final standings were as follows:

District 1A — 

Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville) - 2014 champions
