State specific quizbowl message boards and sites

Anything that's on topic but doesn't fit elsewhere, including related events that might be of interest to quizbowl players (KMO, Science Bowl, etc).

State specific quizbowl message boards and sites

Post by mithokie » Mon Feb 23, 2015 11:18 am

I have noticed that several states conduct a lot of their quizbowl business through state specific websites and/or message boards. These are often associated with a quizbowl alliance of some kind. Would it be possible to have a collection of links on the front page of the website to the state specific sites/boards that might be of interest to people looking for more localized information about quizbowl in their area?

Thanks!

It's not 100% state specific, but this one covers the greater Philadelphia area if this is the sort of thing you're looking for.

I'm going to go ahead and sticky this: if another moderator/administrator thinks it belongs in a different forum, they are free to move it.

Many of the organizations on that page do not promulgate good quiz bowl. We should have a list in hsquizbowl that exclusively points to organizations dedicated to high quality competitions.

This is exactly what I was thinking about. The info on the NAQT link may not all be up to date either.
