ALGER COUNTY, Mich. (WLUC) - Quiz Bowl teams from Munising and Superior Central High Schools will go head to head in a Quiz Bowl competition, hosted by Roam Media in Munising.

The academic competition will take place at Gallery Coffee Co. in Munising on March 16, with invite-only spectators.

For public viewing and interaction, the Quiz Bowl will stream on Roam Media’s Facebook page the following day, March 17, at 7:00 p.m.

Roam’s Digital Media Director, Brice Burge, says they anticipate a tough match.

“With sports coming back, bands being able to play, we knew that academic teams needed to have a focus,” says Burge. “Alger County academic teams are severely underrated. We’ve got to celebrate what they can do in the normalcy of life in the struggles of the pandemic.”

Burge says they are getting new buzzers for the competition and a trophy for the winner.

The original High School Quiz Bowl, hosted by WNMU-TV, is canceled this year because of the pandemic. Burge says they did contact WNM-TVU to ask for permission to host one in Alger County. He says they have been great to work with.

The Alger County Quiz Bowl is sponsored by Deployed Technology and other local sponsors.
