Quiz bowl is a club game in which two teams compete head-to-head to answer questions from all areas of knowledge including history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, sports, and popular culture. The game is played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams consisting of four players each. Players are read questions and try to score points for their team by buzzing first and responding with the correct answer.

There are two basic types of questions in competition: toss-ups and bonuses. Toss-ups are questions that any individual player can attempt to answer without conferring with other players. If the answer given is incorrect, then no other member of that team may give an answer. However, the opposing team may attempt an answer. When a toss-up is successfully answered, the correctly answering team is given an opportunity to answer a bonus. Bonuses are usually worth a total of 30 points and consist of three individual questions worth ten points each. Team members are permitted to confer with each other on bonus questions.


Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation and/or academic competition in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations.

Participants in Model UN competitions, known as delegates, are placed in committees and assigned countries, or occasionally other organizations or political figures, where they represent members of that body. They are presented with their assignments in advance, along with a topic or topics that their committee will discuss. Delegates conduct research before conferences and formulate positions that they will then debate with their fellow delegates in the committee, staying true to the actual position of the member they represent. At the end of a conference, the best-performing delegates in each committee, as well as delegations, are awarded points.
