Just take a look back on Savannah Art Academy. There was no quiz bowl team in this institution just four years ago. The board of directors appointed Del Scott then but there was none who took part in the quiz bowl game. But they had one thing, a will to go. There were many interested students who were willing to give it a try. The effective care of coach and hard work of the students have made the whole thing possible.

In September the Academy organized a try-out for the interested students. They students were given 50 questions. That’s the start and they never had to look back. In November they visited Bleckley High School in Cochrane, competed there and ranked second among 30 Georgian schools.
