The annual Northwestern Regional Library Quiz Bowl is just around the corner.
The event, which will pit ten teams from area high schools against one another, is set to get under way on Saturday, March 18 at 9 a.m. at the Andy Griffith Playhouse in Mount Airy.
Quiz Bowl is an annual academic competition between high school teams who complete in subjects including language, social studies, arts, science, and current events. Each match challenges two high school teams against each other to earn the most correct answers and points.
Quiz Bowl is sponsored by the thirteen libraries of the Northwestern Regional Library in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry, and Yadkin counties as well as the Elkin Friends of the Library and Mount Airy Friends of the Library.
This year the ten teams competing include Alleghany High School, East Surry High School, Elkin High School, Mount Airy High School, North Surry High School, South Stokes High School, Surry Central High School, Stokes Early College, Surry Early College, and Yadkin Early College.
Last year’s winning team was South Stokes High School.
The program is free, and the public is invited to attend.
