SU Ag Center and Division of Ag to hold 21st Annual Black History Quiz Bowl

2014 contest in session
Baton Rouge, LA – The SU Ag Center and the Division of Agricultural, Family and Consumer Sciences will host the 21st  Annual Black History Quiz Bowl on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. in the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center Auditorium.  Previous Black History Quiz Bowls were enjoyable, exciting and successful. Once again, we are encouraging all divisions, clubs and other organizations and individual students within the college to form student teams.  Although we strongly encourage students from our college to participate, teams can include members from other colleges. Faculty encouragement of students has always been a very crucial part of getting enough teams registered for this event. Your cooperation and encouragement are very critical as always. 

Each team will consist of four players, one of whom should serve as captain.  Divisions and organizations can form more than one team if they so choose, and are encouraged to do so.  Competition is open to all students.  Books and plaques will be awarded.

Teams must sign the roster in the Dean's complex by Wednesday, February 18, 2015 in order to participate.  A variety of topics will be covered, including current events, politics, history, sports and entertainment. A study guide is attached.  Study guide and students registration are also available via email at obandele@cox.netRegistration forms are also available in the Division of Agriculture, Family and Consumer Science Office in Fisher Hall, Rm 102. 

Volunteers are also needed to serve as judges, time keepers, and official scorers.  Volunteers who can assist in this year's Black History Quiz Bowl should contact Dr. Owusu Bandele at 225-284-0063 or
