David Reinstein Improver Scholarship (Qblitz)

Post by Dominator » Tue Oct 22, 2019 7:42 pm

Qblitz is launching its second season offering online quizbowl competition against players across the country.

This year, we are proud to offer the David Reinstein Improver Scholarship, named in honor of one of quizbowl's most indefatigable advocates.
Qblitz wrote: David Reinstein is a quizbowl pioneer and innovator. As the coach at New Trier High School, his teams were among the toughest in Illinois, with the 2007 IHSA State Championship to show for it. In 2011, he stepped down from coaching to focus on new challenges. He is the lead writer for Scobol Solo and the Illinois Masonic state championship set, and he spent more than a decade as the head of the Illinois High School Scholastic Bowl Coaches Association and the national Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence. David's tireless efforts have improved every aspect of quizbowl.
The Reinstein scholar will receive a season pass to all Qblitz events for which he/she is eligible in the 2019-20 season. Please visit our scholarship page to apply.

I should have mentioned the due date for applications. Since this scholarship is for events this year, the application deadline is November 10.

The application is short - just 2000 characters or less in response to this question:
