In all, 100,000 questions were compiled. Players were selected not because of their grades, but through a noon-hour house league program.

Slides and cassettes were acquired to help with the art and music questions. Out of the house leagues, Kowalski assembled an all-star team to represent Barrhead at the provincial level. He chose four students who were not only gifted academically, but who were compatible, had complementary strengths so they were covered in all subject areas, and were real team players.

Question: is there any school out there that offers Quiz Bowl / Academic Team / It's Academic / etc. as an actual class? Are there forward-thinking enough schools that would ever consider giving course credit to kids who wanted to do an "independent study" to prepare for Quiz Bowl? Did I just plant a seed in the mind of some high schooler who's now going to go into school tomorrow and ask their administration about the possibility of this?
I hope so.
