Camarillo Academic Olympics’ SuperQuiz Competition Begins

March 4, 2019

CAMARILLO — Twenty teams from 15 Camarillo schools will be competing in the 2019 Camarillo Academic Olympics‘ SuperQuiz in March.

Teams are placed into two divisions—one for fourth and fifth graders and another for sixth, seventh and eighth graders. Each team consists of six students. This year’s SuperQuiz subject is world history.

Here is the SuperQuiz schedule:

  • SuperQuiz Preliminary – Tuesday March 19, 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
  • SuperQuiz Finals – Thursday March 21, 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

A SuperQuiz awards ceremony will take place Thursday, March 21 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. All events will be in the gym at Monte Vista Middle School (888 Lantana St, Camarillo).

Held every other year, SuperQuiz is an important component of Camarillo Academic Olympics. It enables students to take part in academic competition against other schools, private and public schools (and home schoolers), throughout Camarillo. It is an opportunity for students to work together, developing teamwork and team spirit. Team members study together to develop an in-depth knowledge of the year’s topic in preparation for an intense but fun-filled and exciting two-day competition.

Winning teams receive the Richard C. Smith Trophy (founder of Camarillo Academic Olympics), which will have the winning school’s name engraved. The schools will keep their trophies until the next SuperQuiz competition in 2021. The public is invited to attend and root on participants.
