What is Bible quizzing?
Bible Quizzing is a ministry designed to put the Word of God in the hearts of young people. To the casual observer, Bible quizzing is a sport in which two teams match knowledge, speed, memory, and quickness of response against one another on a designated portion of Scripture. Quizzing, however, offers much more than just competition and sport. The program involves falling deeply in love with the Word of God. By becoming involved in memorization, young people develop a love and respect for the Bible. The Word is planted in their hearts and dynamically changes their lives.
The tournament portion of the season begins in January and ends in June for the State Division. Teams can compete for a spot in the Nationals, which is later in the summer.
Is there an age limit?
There are two divisions of Bible Quizzing: The Junior division (Ages 6-11) and the Senior division (Ages 12-18). Inside the Senior division there is an Intermediate division of quizzing for 12 to 14 year olds and first year quizzers and an Experienced division for advanced quizzers between the ages 12 and 18 years old. The quizzer's division is determined by the age they are on December 31st of the year prior to the quiz year (i.e. A student will quiz in the Experienced Division if their 15th birthday is December 31st.)
