Did you know that the Alamo was original constructed without its now famous bell-shaped upper portion?
Middle school students who participate in the Texas Quiz Show know that fact about Texas history and many more!
The inaugural Texas Quiz Show was held in Spring of 2006 with schools from the Austin area. In the Spring of 2007 through 2011, schools from the Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio areas had the opportunity to participate in the State Championship Round in Austin each May.
In 2012, the Texas Quiz Show coverage expanded by 100% to eight regional sites. Students who attend middle school in the Brownsville, El Paso, Nacogdoches and Lubbock areas may now compete more easily for pride and prizes! Now 4th Grade students can compete by submitting questions to stump the middle school contestants and earn prizes. Find out how elementary students or a team from your middle school can become a part of this Lone Star showdown and compete against some fo the best middle school brains in the state today. Visit the Get Involved page for more details.
In 2013, the Texas Quiz Show was opened up to 4th graders! 4th grade students can now submit questions as part of our "Are You Smarter Than A 4th Grader" round. Click here to submit a question and to see the free online lesson plan designed around this contest!
