NAQT Outreach Grants

naqt.com wrote:In the 2018–2019 competition year, NAQT is offering a series of “Outreach Grants” to support community members interested in expanding quiz bowl in their area.

NAQT will award up to ten grants of up to $1,000 apiece to facilitate projects aimed at “expanding quiz bowl.” This is intended to be a very general goal that would encompass getting new schools/players involved, bringing quiz bowl to new audiences, improving the quality of teams, raising the public profile of the activity, and so on.

This is a great idea! I couldn't be more pleased. Especially in Washington State, where our MS Quizbowl scene is in its fledgling state.
