Quiz Bowl is a “sport of the mind” that tests students’ knowledge in a thrilling and competitive format, in which four-person teams go head-to-head against other schools, answering questions on a vast array of subjects, including: Art, Literature, Math, Science, History, Geography, Politics, Sports, and Religion.

The SMA Quiz Bowl team is comprised of students from all grade levels, each of whom bring individual knowledge and skills to form a well-rounded team. From October through March, the SMA team faces schools from across the district in monthly tournaments held at North Central Michigan College.

Since its inception in the 2017-18 academic year, the SMA team has proven itself by routinely placing at or near the top of the standings (and along side much larger schools).  Its inaugural season was highlighted with a second place finish in March’s tournament of 18 teams.  This season, SMA has rocketed to the top, with both its ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams winning local competitions.

New for this season, The SMA Quiz Bowl teams have been invited to compete in WCMU’s Quiz Central television show, where it will match wits and brainpower against schools throughout the State of Michigan.
