6th & 7th Grade Quiz Bowl Teams
The RMS teams compete in games with other schools and at invitational tournaments. Players use their knowledge, skills, tactics, and strategies to score points in four-quarter games. Quiz bowl topics of which players must be knowledgeable and skilled include math, science, history, literature, language arts, art, music, popular culture, mythology, sports and current events, among many others. Some quiz bowl players use knowledge from many areas to compete, while other players may be “specialists” in one or two topics.
