Who we are - 

 

LASA Quiz Bowl is the academic competition club for the Liberal Arts and Science Academy.  We participate in all-subject quiz bowl, History Bowl, Science Bowl, and various other buzzer-based team and individual competitions.  We welcome any LASA student, regardless of their level of experience or commitment, to join and participate in our various competitions over the course of the year.

LASA Quiz Bowl was founded by a group of LASA juniors in the spring of 2007.  In 2012, the team began competing in both History Bowl and Science Bowl.  

We have some form of practice every day at lunch.  Most days are open quiz bowl practice, but special days will be set aside for History Bowl and Science Bowl in the late fall and early spring.  Students are encouraged to practice with their teammates as often as possible, but practice attendance is never mandatory.

Each year, the team participates in high school quiz bowl tournaments across Texas, travels to collegiate tournaments across the country, and attends both major national tournaments - the High School National Championship Tournament and the National Scholastics Championship.  LASA will attend the Texas A&M Regional Science Bowl competition early in the spring semester, with a berth in the National Science Bowl tournament in Maryland on the line.  The Texas State History Bowl Tournament takes place in the early spring, and the National History Bee and Bowl will be in late April.
