AETN was thrilled to host the “Arkansas Quiz Bowl 2019: Governor’s Academic Competition” on Saturday, April 27.
A true tournament of champions, each match showcased the intellect and scholarship of Arkansas’s best and brightest teams. The teams playing in the state finals had each cleared and won difficult Arkansas Governor's Quiz Bowl Association regional and conference brackets to claim their place in the state’s final round. And their performance the final stage of competition made 2019 a year to remember!
Through a series of questions — which required players to display their knowledge of literature, math, science, history, music and economics — each conference match required students to perform in outstanding fashion. We were greatly impressed by the quick thinking and dedicated preparation of all teams and look forward to seeing all these exceptional Arkansas students accomplish in coming years.
