There is still time to register your school, if not done so already! The deadline to enter a team for the CIF-IFC 2020 Student Quiz Bowl has been extended to September 13, 2020.
Registering Your Team
- This event is open to all students from Silver Ring school programs who have registered for the conference.
- Students can register for the conference here. All Quiz Bowl participants may purchase the CIF-IFC Student Member ticket regardless of membership status. Unfortunately, Quiz Bowl bursaries are not available this year as travel to/from the Conference is not required.
- There is no limit to the number of teams that can register per school.
- Each team will consist of 4 competitors plus an alternate. If a school is unable to find enough students to form a full team, blended inter‐school teams may be permitted. Please contact Steph Robinson (email@example.com) if you need support forming a blended team.
- It is expected that each student will play remotely, respecting the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions put in place by their local Public Health Authorities.
- This competition is for undergraduate/college students only.
- The Quiz Bowl will be provided in English.
Format of the Quiz Bowl
- Competition bracket structure will be determined based on the number of teams that register.
- The questions will be multiple choice and timed - in a trivia game format. Each player on the team will answer every question. Scores will be tallied per person and per team.
- Participants will require at least one device connected to a reliable wifi/cellular network to read and answer the questions (i.e. smart phone). A second optional device is recommended to watch the live stream and view the game play (i.e. laptop/computer).
- The event will be live streamed for the conference audience. A moderator will read the questions and provide game updates. Each team captain is invited to join the live stream via web cam to engage in spirited banter; however, this will be optional. The rest of the team will not be on camera.
- At the end of the Quiz Bowl the team with the highest score wins. A top player will also be crowned.
