Quiz Bowl

Quiz Bowl is a “sport of the mind” that tests students’ knowledge in a thrilling and competitive format, in which four-person teams go head-to-head against other schools, answering questions on a vast array of subjects, including: Art, Literature, Math, Science, History, Geography, Politics, Sports, and Religion.

The SMA Quiz Bowl team is comprised of students from all grade levels, each of whom bring individual knowledge and skills to form a well-rounded team. From October through March, the SMA team faces schools from across the district in monthly tournaments held at North Central Michigan College.

The SMA team has established itself as a formidable program by routinely placing at or near the top of the standings (and alongside much larger schools).  Last season, SMA took home two first place finishes in tournaments featuring 16 to 18 teams.

Again in 2019, the SMA Quiz Bowl team has been invited to compete in WCMU’s Quiz Central television show, where it will match wits and brainpower against schools throughout the State of Michigan.
