Quiz Bowl Tests Trivia Knowledge
Have you ever wanted to be a contestant on a quiz show like "Jeopardy?"
Well, the Museum of the Cape Fear will give you a similar opportunity at the second annual North Carolina Quiz Bowl Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.
"Sign up as a contestant to show off your knowledge of the Tar Heel State, or come and watch the competition," says a spokesman. "The event is free to contestants and spectators."
The North Carolina Quiz Bowl is patterned after the museum's popular Civil War Quiz Bowl. The Sept. 24 event is limited to 20 participants, and contestants can preregister by calling (910) 486-1330. Registration will be available at the door and will continue until all 20 slots are filled. Contestants of all ages are welcome. There are two age divisions: 17 and over and 16 and under. Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each age division.
The North Carolina Quiz Bowl is a great way for participants and spectators to learn about the state. Categories for the Sept. 24 competition include the Civil War, the Revolutionary War, sports and the 20th century.
"The Quiz Bowl promises a family-friendly, educational evening of North Carolina history," says the spokesman. "The event also gives new residents a fun way to discover more about their new state."
