Think you're smart? Student Activities is hosting the 5th Annual Quiz Bowl tournament where teams of four compete in a question-and-answer game of general knowledge and quick recall. Game questions cover a range of topics from history and science to sports and popular culture. Quiz Bowl is free to participate.
