WWII Quiz Bowl

School Programs

Since 2004, The National WWII Museum has hosted its annual WWII-themed Quiz Bowl for high school students each spring. Quiz Bowl is an in-depth competition that challenges students on their WWII knowledge and team-building skills. Teams from across the region compete in a preliminary round, and the top two finalists then compete in a televised championship match.

In the preliminary, all teams answer the same questions at the same time on paper and are scored by a panel of Museum educators. The preliminary quiz consists of six themed rounds with 10 questions each.

The top two teams then advance to the championship round, which is broadcast live on Cox’s regional television stations. The championship round is a standard buzzer-type competition. The championship quiz consists of three toss-up rounds and one lightning round.

The National WWII Museum’s high school Quiz Bowl will return in 2025 with a new-and-improved format.
