For the sixth straight year, NHBB is proud to sponsor the National Quiz Bowl Awards, which are awarded each year to the top high school and middle school players and coaches from all-subject quiz bowl competitions. NHBB is eager to support and promote quality academic quiz competitions, including our own US Academic Bee and Bowl for students in 8th grade and younger. Many NHBB stars have won National Quiz Bowl Awards, including this year.  NHBB is delighted to recognize this year’s winners, each of whom will receive a cash prize and a plaque. Congratulations to the 2017 National Quiz Bowl Award recipients!
