Quiz Bowl is a Diocese of Baton Rouge competition in which the elementary and junior high schools of the Diocese compete in a one day event based on the students’ general knowledge in all academic subject areas, religion, and current events.
St. Theresa School has a 5th – 6th grade quiz bowl team and a 7th – 8th grade quiz bowl team. These teams work with faculty coaches during the school year to prepare for the Diocesan Quiz Bowl competition, which is hosted annually in February. Six students are chosen for each team, with four students rotating in and out of competition for each round. Students compete as a team, discussing and solving questions with their teammates in ten second time limits. The student members of each team are chosen based on test results, teacher nomination, and current events knowledge. The students do a wonderful job representing St. Theresa School.
