Middle schoolers have been playing Qblitz events all year and crushing it! Just last week, these three MSers competed in the Varsity-level Qblitz Winter 2 and took home top MS honors:

It's almost time for Qblitz's very first MS-only event, and it's FREE to enter. The Middle School Showdown 1 event will be on Sunday, February 2. If you're a middle school quizbowler, then you can sign up by logging in to your Qblitz account and going to the Events page. (You can sign up for other events while you're there, too.) If you're a middle school coach who is interested in signing up a team, please email me at [email protected] so I can help set up your coach account.

We're looking forward to a huge turnout with players from across the country. Hope to see you there!
