VITAL Quiz Bowl

36th Annual VITAL Quiz Bowl: April 15–18, 2019

Congratulations to 2019's Quiz Bowl winner Bloomington Pub Quiz, and to runner-up Solution VicTree Squad! . 

This fun, fast-paced trivia competition raises money and awareness for the Library's adult literacy program, Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners (VITAL). 

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.

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 VITAL learners who want to improve their literacy, English language, or basic computer skills, paying for tutoring materials, training, and educational resources. Last year, VITAL provided learners with nearly 20,000 hours of free educational services.

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.
