Scholarship Announcements

The Friends of Quiz Bowl Board is pleased to announce our 2020 memorial scholarship recipients, Madeline Bottoms and Sydney Motl. They will each receive $1500 to help with college expenses.

Madeline has participated in Quiz Bowl since the fourth grade at Sacred Heart Catholic School. Her fondest memories include sitting in the audience at AETN watching Sacred Heart win the 2010 and 2015 IA State titles, the countless practices and matches over the years, and the trip to Nationals in Chicago last summer. Madeline plans to attend Arkansas State University and major in civil engineering.

Sydney has been a part of the Arkadelphia Quiz Bowl team for the last 6 years. Her fondest quiz bowl memories include her team’s two state titles, running questions and lightning rounds on the countless early Saturday morning bus rides while eating chocolate chip muffins and sausage biscuits, and the lasting friendships created along the way. Sydney plans to attend Ouachita Baptist to major in English. Her goal is to become a college professor one day.

The Friends of Quiz Bowl Memorial Scholarship was established by the Arkansas Governor’s Quiz Bowl Association in the spring of 2014. The scholarship was established to honor and memorialize Quiz Bowl participants who have died while they were in high school or soon after graduating from high school. The scholarship provides college financial aid to seniors who are participating in AGQBA sanctioned Quiz Bowl events during the current school year.

The Arkansas Governor's Quiz Bowl Association is an organization working for a competition that works under the umbrella of the Arkansas Activities Association (AAA). This means that academic competitions are regulated in much the same way as athletic events. This includes: school classification, eligibility, sanctioning of events and certification. Information about AAA can be found in the AAA Official Handbook. If you don't have one ask your principal, athletic director or contact AAA.
