First of all, a review of who we are – The New Hampshire Quiz Bowl League has been in operation for over 20 years. We are open to all secondary schools who accept New Hampshire day students. We ask $100 in dues, but no one has ever been denied participation for non payment of dues. The dues are applied towards a championship banner, regional awards, pristine questions and quiz masters for the championship tournament, and seven t-shirts for dues payers. We have been assisted in meeting our expenses because of generous support for our league from the Byrne Foundation of Hanover.
The state has been divided into four regions and each region hosts a tournament to which ALL schools are invited. Only a school from the host region may win the regional tournament, but other schools are building up victories towards the three at-large berths to the state tournament. We hold a final tournament in the spring, at which any team which has not already won a region may secure a bid to the state tournament with a win. The tournaments are held on Saturdays beginning at ten o’clock and usually last until around twelve-thirty. We play round robin, usually with ten, ten minute rounds. All of the questions are recycled toss up questions. We use coaches or other volunteers as quizmasters and make no claims to perfection, but we have been very successful with this format through the years. The League emphasizes the fun of academic competition.
