NYQBA was founded to provide new and experienced teams with resources to grow programs and to become more familiar with pyramidal-style quiz bowl. A team of current high-school students, college students, and coaches, NYQBA hopes to further unite the New York quiz bowl circuit through this alliance, drawing together teams from as north as Massena to as south as Long Island. Quiz bowl is an academic activity that prospers in a state populated by talented students, but no platform has existed prior to bring together the fragmented circuit, teams from certain areas of the state having few connections to more developed areas. In order to achieve this, resources like question writing guides, studying guides, and upcoming tournament lists will help all teams to embrace this thought-provoking activity which inspires students to become more knowledgeable about the world.
