MOUNT AIRY — The annual Northwestern Regional Library Quiz Bowl will be held Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the Andy Griffith Playhouse in Mount Airy.

Quiz Bowl is an annual academic competition between high school teams who complete in subjects including language, social studies, arts, science, and current events. Each match challenges two high school teams against each other to earn the most correct answers and points.

Quiz Bowl is sponsored by the 13 libraries of the Northwestern Regional Library in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry and Yadkin counties, the Elkin Friends of the Library and Mount Airy Friends of the Library.

This year the eight teams competing include East Surry High School, Elkin High School, Mount Airy High School, South Stokes High School, Surry Central High School, Stokes Early College, Surry Early College, and Yadkin Early College.

Last year’s winning team was Surry Central High School with Surry Early College as runner up.

The program is free, and the public is invited to attend.
