Since there are an uneven number of teams, all teams must have four individuals present at 10:00 am to take a written quiz (no spectators permitted). Quizzes will be scored and the team averages calculated. The two teams with the lowest averages will enter into a match to ‘play in’ to the semi-finals, with the winner of that match advancing to the semi-finals.
Spectators are encouraged to attend the following matches:
11:00 am – ‘Play-in’ match
1:40 pm – Semi-final ‘A’ match
2:20 pm – Semi-final ‘B’ match
3:40 pm – Final match
Where: Atlantic City Convention Center, Room 413
The 1st Annual AFS Student Quiz Bowl is coming to Atlantic City! The Quiz Bowl is a fun and exciting event where you can watch colleges/universities compete in fisheries trivia or make a team and compete yourself.
Participation is open to teams composed of either: (a) members of a single student sub-unit or chapter of AFS or (b) student members of AFS from a single university or college that doesn’t have a student sub-unit. Only one team is allowed per university or college. Each team must consist of at least four players and may consist of up to five players, with no more than four participating at once (i.e. one team member will be an alternate during a match). Only two graduate students maximum (persons that already hold a four-year degree and are enrolled in a Master’s or PhD program) can participate in a match for a team. That is to say that at least two undergraduate students must be competing at all times during a match. Teams are encouraged to wear school colors!
Please read the Official Rules and see the Quiz Bowl Flyer for more information on the competition.
