Regional Quizzing is also called Field Quiz. We are a part of the Eastern Nazarene College Field. Each year, districts within this field come together and compete at a regional level. There are usually four different categories for quizzing: Varsity A, Varsity B, Junior Varsity A and Junior Varsity B. Teams representing the District are determined by the respective district. For the Pittsburgh District, the highest averages are what determine placement for a respective team. Varsity will quiz Varsity at the Regional Level; Junior Varsity will quiz Junior Varsity unless there is need and ability to quiz Varsity. Dates change each year, but the quiz meet is held in May, usually 2nd/3rd weekend. Check the Quiz Schedule each year to confirm dates. Opening Ceremony starts Thursday evening and Quizzing will occur Friday and Saturday of the Respective weekend. The Award Ceremony will be held Saturday night. Travel arrangements can be made by the respective district and/or individual churches. For the Pittsburgh District, we do desire and try to travel together, schedules and cost may require different options for some churches. Details regarding Travel arrangements will be provided each year. Cost can vary, it is approximately $160 per person. Food and Rooms are available and covered in cost. Travel may increase the cost depending on arrangements made. Quizzers and Spectators pay the same.
Those on the Varsity A team are the only quizzers eligible to make the Regional team which will then compete at the National level. The National quiz will be held at General Assembly and during the years, there is no GA, it will be held at the "Q." See below for information regarding "Q."

2017 National Competition: ENC WINS!
Watch the advanced quizzers compete at General Assembly 2017. Pre-jumping is quite common at this level, but that shouldn't scare anyone away from quizzing. Quizzing is a wonderful ministry to learn God's Word in a unique and fun way. It was also a great way to meet people from all over the district, as well as the region, and then the nation. Lifetime friends and accountability partners can be made while participating in this ministry.
