    Definition
    Quiz Bowl is a question and answer competition played between teams of the Jack Pine Conference.

    History
    Mr. Lynn Laskowsky started Clare's Quiz Bowl program in 1985 and Mr. Howard was the advisor from the Fall of 1998 until the Spring of 2015. The new advisor is Ms. Karly Hansen.

    Format
    As in the past, JPC Quiz Bowl tournaments will begin in December and continue until May. The tournaments occur approximately once a month (on Saturdays) and are co-hosted by two JPC schools.

    Organization
    Continuing this year will be separate Varsity (9th-12th) and JV (9th-10th ONLY) teams.

    Practices
    Quiz Bowl practices are held regularly on Mondays. Participants are expected to attend either the morning session (7:30-8:00am) or the afternoon session (3:15-3:45) unless they've cleared prior arrangements with Ms. Hansen. Brief informational meetings are held during the EXCEL period as well, often the week before a competition.
