Indiana Association of Students of German
Deutsche Musik von gestern bis heute
Students compete in teams by level in our quiz bowl answering questions about the Staatskongress theme. Teams who do well in the qualifying round move on to the finals. The teams scoring the highest in the finals win points for their school as well as recognition at the awards ceremony.
The following sites are recommended for preparation for this year’s Quizbowl.
