The 1st Annual AFS Student Quiz Bowl is coming to Atlantic City! The Quiz Bowl is a fun and exciting event where you can watch colleges/universities compete in fisheries trivia or make a team and compete yourself.

Participation is open to teams composed of either: (a) members of a single student sub-unit or chapter of AFS or (b) student members of AFS from a single university or college that doesn’t have a student sub-unit. Only one team is allowed per university or college. Each team must consist of at least four players and may consist of up to five players, with no more than four participating at once (i.e. one team member will be an alternate during a match). Only two graduate students maximum (persons that already hold a four-year degree and are enrolled in a Master’s or PhD program) can participate in a match for a team. That is to say that at least two undergraduate students must be competing at all times during a match. Teams are encouraged to wear school colors!

Registration will open on April 1st, 2018 and close at 11:59 p.m. EDT, on May 15th, 2018! If your team would like to test your skills this year, please contact Jason Vokoun, AFS Annual Conference Quiz Bowl Planning Team, at [email protected].

Please provide the following information to register your team:

  1. The name of your university/college or student sub-unit of AFS
  2. The name and email address for one individual that will serve as your team’s main contact

If for any reason your team does not receive an acknowledgement of your registration within ten days, we request that you contact the coordinator again. Please ensure that at least one team member can be reached by e-mail during the summer break.

Please read the Official Rules and see the Quiz Bowl Flyer for more information on the competition.
