Quiz Bowl

The Quiz Bowl is a fun, fast-paced trivia competition that raises money and awareness for VITAL (Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners).

Did you know that 36 million adults in the United States are unable to read, write, or do math above a third-grade level? These individuals struggle to find jobs, stay healthy, and support their families. Quiz Bowl proceeds support learning opportunities for those who want to improve their literacy and/or English language skills, paying for tutoring materials, training, and educational resources. Last year, VITAL provided learners with nearly 20,000 hours of free educational services.

Quiz Bowl teams are made up of groups of four––friends, classmates, co-workers––anybody who loves to compete, or just have fun answering questions on art, common knowledge, entertainment, music, sports, and more. Alternates are allowed. Read the full rules.

    Show your support with a tax-deductible donation to VITAL! Visit the Friends of the Library donation page and indicate "VITAL Endowment" as the recipient.

    Congratulations to 2019's Quiz Bowl winner, Bloomington Pub Quiz, and to runner-up Solution VicTree Squad! Full results and questions' sources are available.
