Approximate History of
Manistee County Quiz Bowl

Quiz Bowl began in about 1988. The first contest was held at Manistee Junior High. Preliminary events were held at each local school, and only one team from each school went to the final event. Questions were taken from available trade books. Some were written by coaches. For two years we tried giving students study sheets before the event. This led to a good deal of memorizing. Now questions are purchased from a company specializing in Quiz Bowls. They are not seen by any coach or moderator prior to the test.
