Do you like playing Jeopardy from your living room couch?  Then come join the Quiz Bowl club!  The high school club meets at lunchtime in room B-10 on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The Hillview Middle School club meets at lunchtime on Tuesdays in the music room G-5. 

 In addition to answering questions at lunchtime, you also have the optional opportunity to compete in tournaments.  We invite students to write their own questions to share with the club - please try to make them unambiguous.
