Welcome to the Liberty Middle School Academic Team page
Middle School Quiz Bowl
At the middle school level, quiz bowl is a competitive, academic, interscholastic activity for which players attend periodic practices and then represent their school at tournaments. In Marion County, tournaments are held at Vanguard High School.
Quiz bowl questions range over the entire spectrum of the middle school curriculum and also include a certain amount of current events, sports, and popular culture. The matches feature a blend of individual competition and team collaboration, since no individual player is likely to be an expert in all subject areas. Quiz bowl can reinforce classroom lessons and also encourage players to go beyond their assignments to master other areas as well.
When are Practices
Practices will be held on Wednesdays in building 3 room 203. Practices will be held from 1:45 to 2:45 and students will need rides promptly following the practice.
There will also be meetings on Fridays for the non-competition team.
What are requirements?
The Academic Team requires its members to maintain a minimum 3.0 overall GPA and be in good standing in regard to discipline.
During the school year, the Academic Team will compete against other schools at tournaments hosted off campus. These tournaments will take place on Saturdays. Students will need rides to these tournaments. Parents are encouraged to attend the tournament as well.
Students may be asked to participate in fundraising activities or spirit nights.
