“Quiz Bowl” is a celebration and recognition of scholarship that has been an AETN tradition since 1985. In a series of questions, players must display their knowledge in literature, math, science, history, art, music and economics. Teams from across the state compete for the chance to represent the Natural State in national tournaments.All games are broadcast from AETN, and scholarship money will be awarded.

The Arkansas Governor’s Quiz Bowl Association holds regional tournaments around the state during March. Teams are assigned to a site, and a random drawing places the teams on the pairing schedule. A percentage of teams in the tournament advance to the state tournament. The top two teams from each classification advance to the State Conference Finals.

“Arkansas Quiz Bowl 2011.” will be broadcast on Saturday, April 30, in two sections – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1:30 to 4 p.m.
