VITAL Quiz Bowl

Quiz Bowl36th Annual VITAL Quiz Bowl: April 15–18, 2019

32 teams. Four nights of trivia. Literacy is the winner. 

This fun, fast-paced trivia competition is your chance to show off your smarts while raising money and awareness for the Library's adult literacy program, Volunteers in Tutoring Adult Learners (VITAL). 

Team registration begins February 1! 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! Watch the competition live in the Main Library Auditorium, tune in to CATS channel 3, or support VITAL with a tax deductible donation by visiting the Friends of the Library donation page and indicating "VITAL Endowment" as the recipient.
