How to Choose your WWII Quiz Bowl Team Members

There are several ways to choose team members to represent your school. Give the WWII Quiz Bowl Qualifier and choose the three highest scorers (be warned that the Quiz Bowl will be considerably harder). Hand pick top students or those you think would excel at this challenge. Or you can simply ask for interested participants.
