The teachers/coaches may choose their top teams to represent their school to reflect their strongest representatives for the state finals competition.

0 points for each unanswered or incorrect question
The top two scoring teams advance to the quiz bowl round. However, a school can have only one team participate in the quiz bowl round so if the top two teams are from the same school, the top scoring team will advance and then the next highest scoring team from another school will also advance.
Quiz Bowl Rules:
Any team member may buzz in at any time while a question is read. The individual that buzzes in serves as the spokesperson for the question, and is the only person from whom a response can be given.
One point is awarded for each question answered correctly by a team.
If a team member buzzes in before the entire question is read he/she will have 5 seconds to answer based solely on the information heard up to that point. In this case, conferring with team mates is not allowed.
If a team member buzzes in after the entire question is read, the team has 15 seconds to confer with team members and have a response given by its spokesperson.
