UCCS Students, 

The most exciting, invigorating, competitive and thrilling trivia event is back at UCCS for it's fourth consecutive year! Except this year, the tournament is bigger, better, and contains even more fun!!! The National Academic Quiz Tournament (NAQT) is a team trivia tournament. For those of you who competed in “Academic Decathlon”  or “Knowledge Bowl,” at some point in your educational career, or think you ROCK at trivia, this tournament is right up your alley!! This trivia game, formerly known as “College Bowl,” is a fun-filled intramural-style tournament allowing students to form their own teams made up of friends, coworkers, and other peers. Teams that accumulate the most points qualify for a single-elimination playoff round.

The team that wins the entire tournament has the honor of being recognized on a on a university plaque located in the student life office, and if the resources are available, may compete at a sectional competition. Sign-ups begin TODAY for this tournament.
