Whiz Quiz began in the Fort Worth ISD during the 1977-78 school-year at Paschal High School, but quickly spread to a District-wide competition. Five-member teams representing different schools compete against the clock and each other. Our students learn they can compete and succeed in the academic arenas.
Below are sample questions from a competition.
- To which of the animal kingdom do bacteria belong?
- Saul Bellow’s favorite of his own novels, Henderson, the Rain King, tells of an American’s adventures on which continent?
- What do we call the offspring of a raccoon, a hyena, a cheetah, or a panda?
