AFRICAN HERITAGE MONTH
YOUTH QUIZ  Practice
Quiz
RULES
 Each team: 4 players + 1 back-up/alternate player.
 Players must buzz in and wait to be called upon by
the Host. If the first team to buzz cannot answer the
question, the opposing team will be given the
opportunity to answer the question.
 Questions are in two categories: OPEN and TEAM.
Open questions must be answered by the team
member who rings in first. Team questions can be
discussed by all the team members, but only one
team member can provide the answer.
RULES
(continued)
 If a player buzzes in before the question is completely read,
the host will stop and the player must provide an answer. If
a player is unable to provide an answer, then the question is
read in its entirety for the opposite team.
 If an audience member reveals the answer of a question before the
players answer the question, the question is VO I D.
 In case of a disputed answer, the judge will determine the
correct answer. The judge's decision will be final.
 If no team is able to answer the question, audience members
will be given an opportunity to answer the question.
DURING THE QUIZ ...
 Remember: This is a team event, but only one person can
answer each question.
 Don't interrupt the Host. Wait until they finish the
question before you start to answer.
 Remember: Each new question is a fresh start for you and
for your team. Let the old one go. Don't get flustered. If
your team is down by a large number of points, it is
possible to make up the difference in a few minutes, so
don’t get discouraged.
REMEMBER, DURING THE QUIZ ...
 If an audience member shouts out an answer, no points
will be awarded to either team.
 Each team will have five players; however, only four
can participate at a time. A substitution can be made at
the request of the coach/teacher.
 Have fun and practice positive sportsmanship!
