llustration by Robert Neubecker

Chadron Middle School will host a Quiz Bowl Tournament on March 20th.  This is a great opportunity for students from other schools to visit our school and community  as well as compete in a fun, scholastic competition.

Format of the competition will be as follows:
·     Every team will play three games.
·     The top two scoring teams will then play a championship game.
·     NO calculators will be used
·     Winning teams will be decided on points; if there is a tie, the number of 15 point questions answered will determine outcome; if still a tie, the win/loss record will be looked at.
·     The top three scoring teams will each receive one trophy.
If your student is a member of the CMS Scholastic Team, or if you just want to drop by to watch the kids compete, please know that all are welcome.

The game schedule will be as follows:
