WWII Quiz Bowl

School Programs

Since 2004, The National WWII Museum has hosted an annual WWII-themed Quiz Bowl for high school students each spring.  Quiz Bowl is an in-depth competition that challenges students with WWII knowledge and team-building. The preliminary round is on a Saturday afternoon, where teams from across the region compete by answering questions and completing teamwork challenges. The two top teams then compete in a live televised championship match.

The preliminary round is not a buzzer-type quiz. All teams answer the same questions at the same time on paper and are scored by a panel of Museum educators. Preliminary quiz consists of six themed rounds with 10 questions each. Each round ends with a short teamwork exercise. 

The top two teams at the end of the preliminary round advance to the championship round conducted 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.
