Knowledge Bowl is a team competition that is similar to Jeopardy. Questions typically fall into one of the following categories: math, science, history, language skills, literature, music, geography, and current events. Teams may have a maximum of six members. Each Knowledge Bowl meet consists of a written round and several oral rounds.
Written Round: the entire team works together to answer 50-60 multiple choice questions.
Three teams compete against each other.
No more than four members of each team may participate at one time, but additional members are allowed to substitute during the round.
To answer a question, team members touch the team bar then wait to be recognized.
A recognized team will have fifteen seconds to discuss and answer the question.
All answers must come through the captain and begin with “Our team’s answer is”.
If a team runs out of time or answers incorrectly then other teams will have a chance to answer that question
Scoring: One point is awarded for each correct answer, and a team’s final score is the sum of their written and oral rounds.
