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, where it has established itself as a formidable program by routinely placing at or near the top of the standings in 16 to 18-team tournaments, generally against much larger schools.  SMA has followed-up on last year’s season, which featured two first-place finishes, with a first, second, and fourth-place finish in its three tournaments so far this season.

For the second straight year, the SMA Quiz Bowl team was invited to compete in WCMU’s Quiz Central television show, where it matched wits and brainpower against schools from throughout the State of Michigan.
