Re: 2018 National Quiz Bowl Awards

What criteria were used in deciding nominations for High School Player of the Year? I would figure that my performances at NHBB, HSNCT, NSC, and NASAT were sufficient to secure my nomination.

Rohan and Grant also had to compete with each other on literature questions to a degree not present on any other team I can think o...

Re: Quizbowl Needs a Scheduling Committee

Nationals Discussion

Richard Montgomery A (HSQBRank 3, Midseason Poll 7) RM A is the best team in the region and is a strong contender for NHBB, HSNCT, and NSC.
