BHS Quiz Bowl team will host a fundraiser tournament on April 18

The Burnsville High School Quiz Bowl team is hosting a fundraiser tournament at Burnsville High School at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 18.

This year, BHS has had one of its most successful years ever, placing sixth in the state and second in the conference. As a result of its success, the team has been invited to participate in multiple national level tournaments. One tournament will be over Memorial Day weekend in New Orleans, La., and a second tournament will take place the last weekend of May in Chicago, Ill. 

The fundraiser tournament will help the team cover its costs for registration fees and hotel and travel expenses for these upcoming tournaments. 

Registration and check-in will begin at 8 a.m., with competition beginning at 9 a.m in the Upper C hallway at BHS. There will be multiple preliminary rounds in the morning, an hour break for lunch, and playoff competition in the afternoon to determine the champions. Participants will have the opportunity to order pizza and soda for lunch at check-in. 

The cost is $50 per team. Teams can compete four individuals at once but may have more than four total on the team (substitutions can be made during rounds). There will be two divisions within the tournament, a serious division for teams that want to show off their intellectual acumen, and a fun division for teams that want to participate. 

Teams interested in registering for this tournament should contact Les Moffitt at 952-707-2293 or email him at

Individuals and/or local businesses that are interested in donating prizes, including gift cards, cash, trophies, etc., for the top finishers in each division of the tournament should contact Moffitt. Financial support will greatly support the program and tournament. The Quiz Bowl team thanks you in advance for your contributions.
